The Warsaw Marathon (Polish: Maraton Warszawski) is a road running event held every year since 1979 on the streets of Warsaw (Warszawa), capital of Poland.

Over the years, the route and the start/finish areas have changed many times.

In 2019, the 42.195km race was started at the Polonia Warsaw Stadium (Stadion Polonii Warszawa) on Konwiktorska Street (ulica Konwiktorska), approximately 1,200 metres from the finish line which was on the Gdańsk Boulevards (Wybrzeże Gdańskie) on the edge of the Old Town.

In 2020, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Warsaw Marathon was run in four heats. The first was started on Saturday at 4pm, the second at midnight, the third on Sunday at 8am and the fourth on Sunday at 1pm. Only 250 runners were permitted to run in each heat. The route was five kilometres long, starting and finishing on Theatre Square (Plac Teatralny).

The 2021 event will take place, as usual, on the last Sunday of September. A total of 3,000 runners will get the opportunity to compete over the classic marathon distance. The route will be published on the official event website.
