The Hong Kong Marathon, sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank, is an annual marathon race held in January or February in Hong Kong. In addition to the full marathon, a 10 km run and a half marathon are also held. Around 70,000 runners take part each year across all events.

High levels of humidity and a difficult course make finishing times for the Hong Kong Marathon comparatively slower than other large marathons. The course records were both set in 2012 by Ethiopians: Dejere Abera has the men's record of 2:11:27 hours while Misiker Demissie holds the women's record of 2:30:12 hours.

Hong Kong Marathon was first granted as IAAF Bronze Label Road Race by International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in The year 2012 race, and it was upgraded as IAAF Silver Label road race in The year 2013 race and continued to keep this rating in The year 2014 and Year 2015 race.

The Hong Kong Marathon has hosted the Asian Marathon Championship race on four occasions (2002, 2008, 2013 and 2015).
