After seeing the amazing runs on GDQ for the last couple years, I've decided that I want to begin running this game in any%. What can I do get involved in the community and begin learning everything about the run?

Hi there, and welcome!

Getting started is easy! I can say personally one thing that helps is to simply play the levels A LOT. Playing the Time Attack versions can help with this, but the main thing is memorizing the layouts of the levels via playing them a bunch.

To help you with the speedrun stuff, MooMooAkai has created an awesome series of tutorials that should teach you (almost) everything you'll need to know! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfopGGnbe_yOppsSDEC_MNAXOLilPwrZK
A few of the strats have changed since he made them, but that is a fantastic place to get started. Additionally, there's a public discord that is a great place to ask questions and stuff. Check it out! https://discord.gg/PEj3E

Also, most runners are happy to help if you reach out to them individually.

Have fun!
