10/40 Celebration: From the Creek to the Capital Bike Ride
September 28 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Campbell Law is literally going back to its roots by hosting a symbolic 10/40 bike ride featuring a route from “The Creek to The Capital.”
The ride features two different routes: a 40-mile pastoral ride from Buies Creek through Harnett and Wake counties or a 10-mile ride beginning at that follows the Greenway. The 40-mile ride will begin at 8 a.m. at Campbell University’s Convocation Center and the 10-mile ride will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the White Deer Park Nature Center in Garner. Both will end at Campbell Law School with the finish line on Hillsborough Street for photo ops in front of the historic North Carolina Capitol building.
To celebrate the riders and their supporters, there will be true eastern N.C.-style BBQ cooked onsite in the law school parking lot by alumni as well as live bluegrass music and a variety of vendors for entertainment. There will be a concurrent health fair held at the law school as well as the opportunity to have photos taken on the law school’s famous Cobi Conference Bike. The celebration coincides with the annual International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) business conference and festival and all that it has to offer including free shows for the first time at Red Hat Amphitheatre during Wide Open Bluegrass.
The registration fee for either distance is $40 but the number of participants is limited. Riders are encouraged to sign up at bit.ly/1040BikeRide prior to Sept. 10 to ensure they will receive a commemorative 10/40 Bike Ride t-shirt as well as a ticket for the BBQ.
This event is part of the law school’s year-long 10/40 “From the Capital to the Creek” Celebration. In 2019, Campbell Law is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the school’s trailblazing move to downtown Raleigh and the heart of North Carolina’s Capital City as well as the 40th anniversary of its first graduating class.
