About Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit

Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit, a unique running concept, introduced to India by Volano is a disruptive sports property which has already initiated a revolution in the entire fitness and running category mix . Its model encourages camaraderie between runners as they tackle a running track interspersed with military-style obstacles, including high warped walls, barbed wire and ice.

Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit course with its 15 Military style obstacles is a litmus test for the strength and endurance of any runner.  The finishers of Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit form the tribe of #devilslayers, the indomitable runners who prove to be limitless when it comes to facing challenges and overcoming the obstacles.  After running 5 kilometers and conquering 14 obstacles, it is then that the runners face the Brain Freeze where they have to slide from a 14 Ft height in to a pool containing 20 ton of ice cubes.  Brain Freeze literally freezes the runners leaving them shivering as they approach the podium to receive their finisher’s medal.
