The Silesia Marathon is a road running event in the Upper Silesian urban area, a conurbation of more than 2.5 million people in the Silesia region in Poland.

The event offers a 42.2km marathon and a 21.1km half marathon, held on an undulating and varied course through a mix of urban and green areas.

Both races start at the Silesia City Center, a shopping mall in the city of Katowice, and both finish on the athletics track of the brand-new 55,000-seat Stadion Śląski (Silesian Stadium) in the city of Chorzów.

The start area and the finish line are approximately 3,800 metres apart.

The event also features a 4.2km Mini Silesia Marathon. Held one day before the marathon, the race begins and ends at the Silesia City Centre in Katowice.
