The Valley Head Cemetery was built in 1888, making it one of the older graveyards of Dekalb County. A place reaching back over 100 years, rich with local history. Unfortunately, with age comes wear and tear as the elements wear down on the burial ground. This is why there is a race taking place this Saturday to raise funds to upkeep the grounds.

The Valley Head Cemetery “Running In Memory Of” Race is an event meant to raise donations for maintenance on this historical site. This year, there will be a 5k and a 10k race, with age and gender divisions. The overall male and female winners will be awarded a cash prize, with other awards available, including a miniature refrigerator. There will also be a “Fun Run” so that children can also enjoy the festivities.
