There are two categories that you can choose from-
Competitive – Being in the competitive category means racing for the fastest time in completing the circuit. Compete as a team or as individuals. The top 3 in both men and women’s division will be rewarded amazing prizes for their superhuman performances. If you cross the finish line with your bib still pinned on, you will also get your timing certificate stipulating the time you took to complete the course.
Non-Competitive – This category is for those participants who want to enjoy the day and complete the course at their leisure. A fabulous fun filled event if you come with a group of family, friends & colleagues. Your run is not timed and you may leave any obstacle that you wish to. The course for both categories of participation is the same.
Legends Cup – Are you always showing off your strength at the gym? Do you think you can #SlayTheDevil at every Swift Devils Circuit run? Then Legends Cup is just the competition for you!

Well, top the Leaderboard table at the end of the season and you win a brand new Maruti Suzuki Swift! That’s not all though, if you’ve ended up in the top 5 but missed out on the car, there will be a hefty cash prize waiting for you!
