In the past seven seasons, we’ve had all kinds of questions from our Devil Slayers. Read the answers below; we may have covered it!
What is Devils Circuit?
Maruti Suzuki Arena Devils Circuit, arguably India’s most-awaited annual event, is India’s answer to the regular-shmegular fitness events in Asia. Held in six cities between September and March, it draws health enthusiasts from a wide age and fitness spectrums who come and test their physical and mental strength on our five-kilometre race track.
But hold on! This is not a mini-marathon where you run on a flat stretch of land; on our track are 15 thrilling and fun obstacles of varying difficulty levels that require you to ‘Reach for the Sky’, ‘Reach Across’ barriers, crawl under barbed wires, and jump in a pool filled with tonnes of ice cubes. Think, old-school hurdle races, and multiply that by 100. That’s the experience you’re looking at
Who is it for?
It is for everyone! It doesn’t matter if it’s your first sports event ever! Come with your friends, family, or colleagues. Bring your old folks, your lazy acquaintances, and your super-fit gym buddies.
How do I get my timing certificate?
The timing certificates are available only to the participants in the competitive category. These shall be emailed to you at the email ID provided at the time of registration, a week post the event.
How do I access my event day photographs?
We start putting random albums of photographs on our Facebook page with in a week after the event. Please ensure you like our page to stay updated. Additionally, we tag all photographs to the bib numbers. These photographs are available on our website from a week after the event day. Please note that for us to tag your photographs, it is important that the bib number is visible. We urge you to ensure that this is clearly marked. In some cases, your bib number may become covered in mud or get lost while you are running, in these cases we urge you to write your bib number on your forehead or on your arm with a black marker to ensure your photographs can be tagged to you.
How do I collect my BIB number and goodie bag?
Our BIB distribution drives usually take place on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday prior to the Devils Circuit edition. In the cities where the Devils Circuit race is a two-day event, the BIB distribution takes place on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday before it. The information regarding date of the BIB Distribution will reach you on your email id as soon as you have completed your registration. The venue and the timing are sent to you a fortnight before the event, on the same email id.

If you don’t find pictures against your BIB number on our website, search our Facebook event page and Instagram page where we release a Dropbox link with all the photographs in which we couldn’t decipher your BIB number. If there’s still no luck, please write to us at email@example.com with details of your running time and your friends’ BIB numbers if you were running in a group, so that we are able to identify you in our pictures. Please note, however, that although we will try our best, we’re not sure we will find your picture, if your BIB number is not visible during your run.
