Delp, a BSC student-athlete who lost his life while assisting a stranded motorist.

Entry fee is $15, in advance and $20 on the day of the race. Entry fee for walkers is $10 (no late fee).  The format includes several age groups, and each participant receives a t-shirt.  Additional information can be obtained online by visiting the Bluefield State College home page ( ,or by contacting Vonda Wilson, BSC Cross Country Coach and Athletic Department Administrative Secretary, at (304) 327-4208/e-mail,

"Brian was an exceptional person," noted BSC athletic director Terry Brown. "He was a humanitarian, a leader, and an excellent student athlete." The Humanitarian Athletic Award is presented in the form of two $250 scholarships (one award for a male student-athlete and one for a female student-athlete) per academic year.   One of the scholarships is funded on an annual basis by local educators Tom and Janie Farmer.  Scholarship applicants must be BSC student-athletes, two-year letter winners, and they must maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average, according to Brown.
