(Bluefield)—The fifth annual “Brian Delp Memorial 5K Run and Walk” will be held at Bluefield State College on Saturday, October 23, beginning at 9 a.m. The event, a featured activity during BSC’s homecoming week, is designed to raise funds for the “Humanitarian Athletic Award,” a scholarship in memory of the late Brian A. Delp, a BSC student-athlete who lost his life while assisting a stranded motorist four years ago.

Entry fee is $15, in advance, ($10 for walkers) and $18 on the day of the race. The format includes several age groups from 14-and-under to 70-and-over. Each participant receives a t-shirt, and additional information can be obtained online at:,or by contacting Vonda Wilson, BSC Cross Country Coach and Athletic Department Administrative Secretary, at (304) 327-4208, or by 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.  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.
