Very belated report, but I did indeed do it. The bus system to the start works well and I found the course reasonably straightforward. There are a few stupid issues - if you are doing the 10k and you are fast you will catch up everyone running slower than about 4 hr pace, meaning some very fast guys need to thread their way through hundreds of marathon plodders - not really a problem for the marathon runners but probably very annoying if you are an elite 10k runner.
Minimal support except for the last half mile, which is quite a tough uphill finish which I really enjoyed - nice finish to a generally fairly flat race. Same medal given to half marathoners which seemed a bit odd.
Next race in Turkey will be the Cappadoccia 110k in October.
