The Padova Marathon is a road running event held each April in the Veneto region in Italy.

From 2000 up to 2016, the event was known as the Maratona Sant'Antonio.

The 42.2km marathon route begins and ends in the city of Padova (Padua), starting on the athletics track of the Stadio Euganeo stadium and finishing on Italy's largest town square, Prato della Valle (pictured). The route takes the runners through five municipalities in the Provincia di Padova (Province of Padua).

The 21.1km half marathon starts in the spa town of Abano Terme and finishes, like the full marathon, on Prato della Valle in the heart of Padova.

Both routes are mainly flat and fast.

The event also incorporates a non-competitive run and walk, the Stracittadine. Participants can choose between three routes (1km, 5km, 10km).

While the competitive races draw most of the media's attention, the non-competitive run and walk attracts a far greater number of participants. According to the event's organizers, more than 25,000 took part in the Stracittadine in 2017.
