The Maratón de Buenos Aires is an annual marathon foot-race which takes place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the Southern Hemisphere's Spring, usually in October.

The 21st edition of the Buenos Aires Marathon started on October 9, 2005 at 7:30 at the 9 de Julio Avenue and Córdoba Avenue in the Recoleta neighbourhood, being the start also the ending point after the 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards) of the classic race.

The course visited many important spots of the city, featuring Callao Avenue, the River Plate Stadium, Libertador Avenue, Palermo neighbourhood, Corrientes Avenue, passing by the famous Gardel's neighbourhood, then down to La Boca's Caminito, to return passing by Puerto Madero, Casa Rosada, and the city centre.
