The Bieg Uliczny Jaworzno (‘Road Race Jaworzno’) is a running event held annually in Jaworzno, a city of about 90,000 in the Upper Silesian Industrial Region between the cities of Katowice and Kraków in southern Poland.

It offers two very undulating races, both starting and finishing at the Stadion Miejski ‘Victoria’ (Municipal Stadium ‘Victoria’) in the southern part of the city:

  • 9km bieg rekreacyjny (‘recreational run’)
  • 15km bieg główny (‘main race’)

The 9k run includes approximately 90 metres of ascent, the 15k race 140 metres.

Although the race takes place within the city limits of Jaworzno, a large part of the route runs through open countryside and agricultural land between the city centre and the district of Szczakowa, where Poland's first coal mine was opened in 1767.
