Its a good event - easy to get there using the huge numbers of buses they supply at Taksim Square, which has excellent connections. There is another bus pick up point too - its not worth trying to get to the start independently. Although lots of good hotels around Taksim so that would be a good spot for a stay anyway. Not a great deal of crowd support, but that doesn't bother me - plenty of water, services, etc. Pretty flat apart from the last half a mile but I really liked having to work hard at that point, esp as thats where most of the support was.
