NOIDA: Volano Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., India's leading participative sports firm hosted the Grand Finale of the 'Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit' in Noida which saw a huge participation of over 8000 runners making it a truly magnificent experience for all.

The Delhi NCR edition turned out to be the single biggest edition for the Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit in this season cementing the confidence of the organisers in their home turf.

The superb layout of the course and meticulous event planning ensured that the packed event went flawless in execution creating a memorable experience for all the participants.

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 Devil Slayers, the indomitable runners who prove to be limitless when it comes to facing challenges and overcoming the obstacles.

After running five kilometers and conquering 14 obstacles, it is then the runners faced the Brain Freeze where they had to slide from 12 ft height into a pool containing 20 ton of ice cubes.

Brain Freeze literally froze the runners leaving them shivering as they approached the podium to receive their finisher's medal.

The Noida edition also witnessed the Grand Finale of the Legends Cup, where competitive runners from across India ran for the grand prize of a Maruti Suzuki Swift.

Ajith C T and Sunil Kumar, two Army men joined the Legends Cup wagon from Hyderabad and proved to be worthy competitors to each other leaving everyone else behind.

Both these men were neck to neck against each other in the competition till the seventh race, finally, it was Ajith who won the coveted Legends Cup in the Men category that too with setting up a record for the fastest timing of finishing the course in 18 Minutes.

On the other hand, Women category saw many ups and downs in the Leaderboard with the table almost tied up till the Delhi NCR event.

Sanjana George clinched the Legends Cup at the Delhi NCR event confidently by conquering all the obstacles including the mighty Summit - The 14 Ft. Warped Wall which has been and remains a challenge for most of women participants.

R S Kalsi, sr. executive director, marketing and sales, Maruti Suzuki, was present at the occasion and handed over the keys of the All New Swift Car to the winners of Legends Cup.

Speaking at the occasion, he said, "We are extremely excited that the Devils Circuit today is the largest disruptive sports property in the country - the fact that every finisher gets his or her medal after pushing themselves to be limitless is exactly the DNA of our swift - pure performance and sporty. Given this seamless integration of our two brands, it is no wonder that Devils Circuit has continued to grow year on year and attract participants who find the thrill and adventure irresistible."

Delhi NCR also hosted edition of Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit Junior and Sub Junior which have been specially developed for children from seven to ten years and 11- 15 years.

The 1.5 km course had nine specially designed obstacles to test the grit of teens and expose them to the adventurous concept.

Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit, one of the coolest concepts of running introduced to India by Volano is a unique 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.

We aim to make Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit a landmark race and will continuously engage with our Devil Slayers to make it a bigger and better experience every year. We are also confident that we'll receive a greater response with each passing year, thereby making the Devils Circuit one of the most sought-after races in India," said Adnan Adeeb, managing director and co-Founder, Volano Entertainment Pvt.
