The Záhorácky maratón offers a polmaratón (half marathon) and a maratón (marathon) through the Záhorie ("behind the mountains") region in Slovakia.

This year, the event also features a marathon relay for mixed teams of four runners (11k+10k+11k+10k).

Bordering on Austria and Czechia in the west, this low-lying dry region, characterized by agriculture, forests and small towns, is separated from the rest of the country by two mountain ranges—the Malé Karpaty (Little Carpathians) to the east and the Biele Karpaty (White Carpathians) to the north.

Both the half and the full marathon are out-and-back races on minor roads across the Záhorská nížina (Záhorie Plain).

Starting at the športová hala (sports hall) in Senica, an old town of about 20,000 people, the course is gently-undulating. It has been accurately measured.

The marathon turnaround point is in Šaštín-Stráže which is home to one of Slovakia's most important basilicas, the Bazilika Sedembolestnej Panny Márie (pictured).
