The Women's Marathon event at the 2004 Summer Olympics took place on August 22, 2004 in the streets of Athens, Greece. World record holder Paula Radcliffe of Great Britain started as favourite for the race, and led from the start. She was overtaken during the race by Mizuki Noguchi from Japan and Catherine Ndereba of Kenya. After dropping to fourth place, Radcliffe dropped out of the race, citing pre-race nutrition problems and illness for her disappointing performance. Deena Kastor of the United States ran a conservative race to come through for a bronze.
