The Vinařský maraton ('Wine Marathon') is a running event held annually in late October in a wine-producing region in the Jihomoravský kraj (South Moravian Region) in the Czech Republic, near the borders with Austria and Slovakia.

Starting in the small town of Velké Bílovice, the route is a very scenic 21-kilometre multi-terrain loop through rolling countryside, visiting the villages of Čejkovice and Vrbice.

The půlmaraton (half marathon) is one lap of this course. The maraton is two laps.

Either race is open to individual athletes and relay teams of up to eight runners.

Entry spots are limited and may fill up early.

In addition to the above races, the event offers a 1.5k non-competitive fun run, the Vinařská míle (‘wine mile’).
