The Półmaraton dookoła Jeziora Żywieckiego (Half Marathon around Żywiec Lake) is a road running event in the województwo śląskie (Silesian Voivodeship) in the southern part of Poland.
It features a very undulating (465 metres of ascent) but also very scenic route which takes the runners around the 8km-long Jezioro Żywieckie, a reservoir in the Beskidy (Beskid Mountains).
The start and the finish are on Rynek, the main square of Żywiec, an old beer-brewing town of about 32,000 residents, situated on the southern tip of the lake.
The time limit to finish the race is three hours.
The course has been measured and certified by the Polish Athletic Association PZLA.
