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.

Both the 42.2km marathon and the 21.1km half marathon feature an undulating and varied single-loop course through a mix of urban and green areas, finishing on the athletics track of the brand-new 55,000-seat Stadion Śląski (Silesian Stadium) in the city of Chorzów.

The stadium is situated in the vast Park Śląski (Silesian Park), one of Europe's largest city parks.

The half marathon route begins in the park, near the stadium, whereas the start of the marathon is on the eastern edge of the park in Katowice, the biggest city in the Silesian Metropolis.

Participants in the full marathon run through four cities: Katowice, Mysłowice, Siemianowice Śląskie and Chorzów.

The event also offers a 4.2km Mini Silesia Marathon, held one day before the marathon.
