The Rajecký maratón is an annual road running event in the Žilina Region (Žilinský kraj) in the northern part of Slovakia.

The start/finish area is on the main square of Rajec, a small town situated in the lovely Rajčanka river valley, approximately 190 kilometres from Bratislava.
Both the half and the full marathon begin with a 2km loop through Rajec.
Then, the route runs out and back on a country road along the valley into the wooded Strážovské vrchy mountains.
The first half of the race is uphill (+100m of elevation gain in the half marathon, +200m in the full marathon) and the second half is downhill.
The turning point for marathon runners is in Čičmany, a village well known for its beautiful folk architecture.
The course remains open to traffic during the event.
