Sports & outdoor events

The Annual Jennifer Webb Memorial 5k Run, kept in March, is one of the few annual sporting events in Buies Creek, NC. The race is held at the Campbell University campus, and it is kept in memory of Jennifer Webb, who was a beloved athletic trainer at the university.

 

She died in a tragic accident on April 30th, 2000, at the age of 22, and since then, the athletic training club has held this annual race, in her memory.

 

It is not as big or as renowned as other marathons and runs in North Carolina, but this memorial run is much larger and more important than any run for all those who knew Jennifer.
