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

Four race options are available:

  • Saturday:
    • 4.5km Mini Silesia Marathon
  • Sunday:
    • 21.1km Silesia Półmaraton
    • 42.2km Silesia Marathon
    • 50km Ultra Silesia Marathon

All races begin at Stadion Śląski (Silesian Stadium), a modern 55,000-seat stadium in the city of Chorzów. The finish line is on the athletics track inside the stadium.

The 4.5km route takes the runners through the vast Park Śląski (Silesian Park), one of Europe's largest city parks.

The longer races are undulating and varied single-loop courses through a mix of urban and green areas in four cities: Katowice (the biggest city in the Silesian Metropolis), Mysłowice, Siemianowice Śląskie and Chorzów.

Both the marathon and the half marathon route have been certified by IAAF and PZLA, the Polish Athletic Association.

The 50k ultramarathon is a new event, held for the first time in 2019.
