Went to an event "DEVILS CIRCUIT" at Yalahanka, Bengaluru on Sunday, 01November2015.
It was me, amma, Ravi and Rishi, about 15 km from here, near Nitte Engg. College, around 10.30am, when the registration were already closed. It was disappointment for my boys.
It was big treat to see the youngsters, boys and girls, brimming with vigour, enthusiasm and energy.
It's for building up challenge for fitness. Registration fee was Rs1500/- and almost 3000 participants!
Also there were stage for music, dance and presentation, cross fit, and food stalls.
Devils Circuit is India’s first and, by far, the BIGGEST Obstacle Running series.
Then, Devils Circuit is the TOUGHEST challenge you’ll ever encounter! Designed to thrash you out of your comfort zone, Devils Circuit will present challenges unheard of! But, only to inspire you, motivate you, drive you towards achieving absolute FITNESS!
Bloody Logs : These are wooden logs placed in a manner that every individual has to jump over or crawl under them to move ahead in the course. The logs ensure that running enthusiasts take a halt and use their lower limb to generate power.
Hells Nets : One of the favourites of the Defense fraternity, this obstacle requires athletes to use their forearm strength to crawl across a net suspended in air. Balance and stability are equally important in overcoming this challenge.
Stairway to Hell: Stacks of hay, shaped like a pyramid, are designed to ensure a continuous ascend and descend for the runners.
Devils Swing: This obstacle reminds one of the monkey swings of childhood. A test of upper body strength; this challenge will see athletes moving forward using their shoulders without any support of the lower body.
Pools of Shrill: This obstacle comes straight out of the notebook of festival holi. This segment of the course will involve a splurge in the chilly, muddy water for the participants.
Torture Trenches: True to their name, torture trenches will have barb wires to keep the participant on their knees. The wires and muddy ground will keep everyone in close proximity to mother earth
Tire Trawls: This challenge consists of over 100 tyres spread across 100 meters. These wheels make normal running impossible and forces all enthusiasts to hop and run.
