Turkey: French Runner Captures Cappadocia Crown

Yannick Noel wins 119km Salomon Cappadocia Ultra Trail in 11 hours 7 minutes.

French runner Yannick Noel broke ribbon in Turkey's Salomon Cappadocia Ultra Trail on Saturday.
The 33-year-old athlete finished the trail race at the first place in 11 hours 12 minutes 7 seconds, defeating 442 others in the 119-kilometer (74 miles). Thus, he broke the course record with running 27 seconds faster.
The Salomon Cappadocia Ultra Trail has a variation in altitude of more than 3,730 meters winding through plateaus, valleys and hills overlooking unique "fairy chimney" volcanic cones of Cappadocia, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Athletes ran in three different courses; ultra (119-kilometer or 74-mile) with a variation in altitude of 3,730 meters, medium (63-km or 39-mile) with 2,030 m, and short trail (38-kilometer or 23.6-mile) with 1,120 m.

It is also famous for its colorful fresco paintings covering underground cities, boutique hotels, houses carved into rocks, rock churches, chapels, and shelters used by early Christians. -
