Held on a very scenic course through the old town of Tata in Hungary, the 14km Tatai Minimarathon attracts a crowd of about 1,000 athletes.

The race takes the runners through the Baroque Old Town, through lovely parkland and woods, and around Tata's best sights — the medieval castle, the 2.5km-long Öreg-tó (Old Lake) and the smaller Cseke-tó (Small Lake), all beautifully depicted in the above 16th-century engraving by Georg Hoefnagel.

In 2015, the top finishers were István Dániel Szögi and Simona Staicu.
