The Ultrabalaton is an annual ultramarathon running event in Hungary.

It is held at Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe.

Starting in Balatonfüred on the northern shore, participants run one lap in an anticlockwise direction around the lake.

The route is 221 kilometres long and undulating. It takes the runners on cycleways, footpaths and minor roads through a string of villages and small towns, mostly close to the shore.

The event is open to individual athletes and relay teams of up to 13 runners.

In addition to the ultramarathon race, the event offers a 21.1km félmaraton (half marathon).
