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.
In todays new post-pandemic world, this concept is an even bigger draw for the organisations that are looking for opportunities of connecting and engaging with a diverse employee base. At Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit, historically over 70% of participants have come from corporate backgrounds and this season, the expectation is that this number shall be surpassed. According to previous participants, at the races, everyone works towards the same goal- leaving no man behind. The organic camaraderie and team spirit that arises, sets up a perfect way to team build and create deep connections.
The Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit races in India introduced the concept of obstacle running and in the last 10 years have hosted participants from over 200 cities, and 30 countries. In fact, the winner of the last Season (2019-20) in the male category, was a German from Berlin- Lucas Kempe- who holds podium finishes in almost all major obstacle races globally. For the previous season, this honour of winning the Devils Circuit went to major Sukhchain Singh from the Indian army.
Speaking at the launch of the Season 2022-23, Adnan Adeeb, Founder of the property, had this to say: "I am very emotional as we celebrate the 10th year milestone, and I wish to dedicate this coming season of the Maruti Suzuki races to the never die spirit of Indians. In the last 10 years, it has been an absolute privilege to have hosted participants from over 200 cities, and 30 countries. And now with this upcoming season, we are delighted to partner once again with Dosti Realty for our 5th Mumbai edition, where we will host over 6,000 devilslayers."
A similar thought was echoed by Mr. Anuj Goradia, Director Dosti Realty. "It was a pleasure to host the 'Maruti Suzuki Arena Devils Circuit' in 2018 and 2019 and we look forward to partnership once again. 2 years has been a long wait and we hope to see an even bigger crowd than before for the Mumbai edition that is being hosted at our project Dosti West County in Balkum, Thane (W). Dosti Realty firmly believes that fitness is a very important part of a person's daily life which is why even while designing most of our projects we keep this aspect and mind. We try to give our customers an array of amenities like swimming pool, gymnasium, squash court, badminton court, etc. that help promote daily fitness," says Mr. Anuj Goradia, Director Dosti Realty.
The concept has grown popular among fitness enthusiasts as well as corporates seeking to build a healthy team spirit. Maruti Suzuki Devils Circuit enjoys participation from individuals across a diverse age group ranging from 16 to 70 years old. Designed for those across varying fitness levels, it allows everyone to test themselves in a highly challenging environment.
With a grand prize of a brand new Maruti Suzuki swift up for grabs in both the Male and Female competitive participation categories, the property also offers the biggest prize in amateur sports in the country today.

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 Swift Devil Slayers, the indomitable runners who prove to be limitless when it comes to facing challenges and overcoming the obstacles. After running 5 kilometres and conquering 14 obstacles, it is then the runners faced the Brain Freeze where they had to slide from 14 Ft height in to 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.
