The Banskobystrický maratón (Marathon Banska Bystrica) is a road running event held annually since 2012 in Banská Bystrica, a city of about 80,000 people, situated in the narrow Hron valley which cuts through Slovakia's mountainous heartland.

The first six editions of the race took place each year in September.

In 2018, the event moves to a new date in June.

It also features a new course, starting at the Europa SC, the biggest shopping center in the city, and finishing on the athletics track of the nearby Štadión SNP Štiavničky.

The 21.1km half marathon is three laps and the 42.2km marathon is six laps of a mainly flat and fast out-and-back course.

The event also offers a 4.2km run, a half marathon relay race for teams of three runners, as well as races for inline skaters, kickbike riders and handbikers.
