The  Cemetery Association hosts a race each year to help cover the cost of mowing and maintenance on the cemetery grounds. 

Valley Head Cemetery We Run In Memory Of... has grown. This will be year 8 for our race.  We started running on the paved driveways in the cemetery with a 5K and Fun Run.  We recently added a 10K by request and relocated the races to begin on the Valley Head Town Square at the Robert Johnson Roofing and Construction Office. The route will take runners through the valley following the rail road tracks on a scenic run up Violet Hill Road and back to the town square. Runners can choose between a 5K, a 10K or Kids 1 Mile Fun Run. Registration forms are available at Valley Head Town Hall and Hammondville Town Hall, our Facebook page, at early pickup or at registration on the morning of the race or you can request one by mail by calling Sherryl 256-657-1616
