New Delhi [India], March 24 (ANI/PRNewswire): The 10th Season of India's biggest Obstacle race - The Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit, hosted by Volano Entertainment Pvt Ltd - culminated in a spectacular finale on Sunday in Noida. Since its inception almost a decade ago, The Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit Races have attracted athletes and thrill seekers alike. Proclaimed to be the Toughest Race in Asia, the winners of the Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit Legends Cup have been army personnel, fitness trainers, and professionals with an affinity to personal fitness.
The current season, the 1st post pandemic, saw a remarkable return of over 35,000 devilslayers to the course where they ran 5 kms and over came 15 military style obstacles, across an 8 city rollout.
Known for offering the biggest prize in amateur sports, The Legends Cup category of participation sees enthusiasts run across every city of the season to try and get a podium finish which gives them points. The male and female athletes at the end of the season can win themselves a brand new Maruti Suzuki Swift Car. The competition this year was fierce and the participants who emerged victorious were Zahabiya Merchant from Mumbai in the Women's category, and retired soldier Sukhchain Singh from Hisar in the Men's category. Remarkably this is Sukhchain's second win. He previously competed in 2018-19 and had already won the top spot and a car for himself.
Speaking at the finale of the season, Adnan Adeeb, Founder of the property, had this to say: "I am very emotional as we celebrate the 50th edition milestone, and I wish to dedicate this season of the Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit races to the never die spirit of this amazing growing tribe of Devilslayers who are all now determined than ever before to raise the bar of their personal fitness goals and compete to win because to them and us, life is no longer a spectator sport.
In the last 10 years, it has been an absolute privilege to have hosted participants from over 800 cities, and 30 countries. And now as we celebrate a massive 50th edition at the end of our 10th season, I am grateful and feel truly blessed to have received the support from partners, participants and the incredible tribe of devilslayers. My biggest thanks to Maruti Suzuki for their continued belief in Devils Circuit, together we will make this property soar to higher skies."
A similar thought was echoed by Mr. Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, "We find tremendous synergies between Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit and the brand Swift. Designed to appeal to the young and vibrant India, Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit builds oneness and camaraderie among participants. Brand Swift also has a cult following among the youth owing to its sporty design and powerful performance. It provides an adrenaline rush with its driving dynamics & is perfect for those who want to push their limits and experience the thrill of the road, no matter what terrain they're on, be it long, curvy or rough. Hence the Swift resonates perfectly with the Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit, pushing participants to 'Be Limitless'."
