The Tatai Minimarathon is a running event held annually in August in the town of Tata in Hungary.

Starting and finishing at the Művelődési Központ Tata (Cultural Centre Tata), the race is 13.5km long and very scenic.

The route takes the runners through the Baroque Old Town, through lovely parkland and woods, and around Tata's best sights — the medieval Tatai vár (Tata Castle), the 2.5km-long Öreg-tó (Old Lake) and the smaller Cseke-tó (Small Lake).

It also passes the Tatai Olimpiai Központ (Tata Olympic Centre; pictured), a favourite training destination for many of Hungary's top athletes:
