Life Without Limits Half Marathon & 5K

Saturday, October 28, 2023 • Florence, AL • Course Map

The weekend before Halloween brings the 14th annual running of the Life Without Limits Half Marathon, 5K & Fun Run, a race designed to raise both money and awareness about the mission of United Cerebral Palsy of Northwest Alabama, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children, adults and families dealing with cerebral palsy and related disabilities.

The race will take runners through both the city streets of Florence and across two bridges that span the wide Tennessee River which flows through the heart of the city.

The bridge crossings will involve some significant changes in elevation both on the ascent and descent, but much of the rest of the course will feature a mixture of flat and fast stretches along paved surfaces, as well as rolling hills in some sections, on both sides of the river.

Just over 550 runners crossed the finish line in the half marathon and 5K combined in 2014, including 450 finishers in the half marathon alone.

For this year’s race, the scheduled starting time is 8:00 AM (the 5K starts at 8:10 AM), and runners will have 3 1/2 hours to complete the 13.1-mile race.

Race Weather & Climate

Located along the winding Tennessee River in upper Alabama’s northwestern corner, the city of Florence typically experiences mild to moderately warm weather in the early fall, and usually has its second-driest month of the year in October.

On race day (Oct. 28), the average low is 45ºF and the average high is 69ºF.
