The Silesia Marathon, despite organized only 15 years, is an event that we aim to develop. The most important aspect for us as organizers is organization and participant satisfaction. Therefore, right after this year’s race, we asked for your feedback. We received 1377 completed surveys for which we thank you. This provides us with interesting material for analysis. We are aware that there are aspects of the event that can be improved, and we will be doing so, thanks to your input.
Below, we present a few statistics based on a larger date base that apply to all participants.
21% of the participants were women (79% were men). The bigges age groups were 31-40 years old and 41-50 years old, both representing 35% of the participants.
Only 12% were newcomers to the event, while more than 39% were experienced athletes, often participating in street races.

Perfection may not exist in the world, but that doesn’t mean we can’t strive for it. We will definitely thoroughly analyze your feedback.
We are pleased that the vast majority of you appreciate the dedication and hard work of the entire team as well as hundreds of volunteers. This encouragement motivates us to continue our dedicated efforts for the next edition.
