The Men's marathon T11 was a marathon event in athletics at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens, for totally blind athletes (running with a sighted guide). Defending champion and world record holder Carlos Amaral Ferreira of Portugal took part, along with sixteen other athletes, from a total of ten countries. No athlete had ever successfully defended his title in the men's fully blind marathon, and Ferreira failed to become the first; he took silver, finishing half a minute behind Japan's Yuichi Takahashi.[1]

The 2004 men's T11 marathon is the most recent to have been held as a distinct event. At the 2008 Paralympics, it was abolished, and athletes categorised T11 (totally blind) were invited to run in the T12 marathon for athletes with severe visual impairment.[2]
