OkamikazeOkamikaze Sonic Megamix Sonic 1:00:00 SegaCD USA Link Having very similar design to Sonic 1 (albeit being inspired by it), this game can also be played both glitched and glitchless and still be achieved within an hour. Some of these tricks are harder on this version whereas some of them are vastly easier (see SB3 in my PB). Very fun run and a good fangame almost of Mania's caliber. 0 CD vs. Genesis
TheGreenViper8TheGreenViper8 Sonic Chrono Adventure Any% 1:50:00 PC USA Link In previous Sonic Speed events, Sonic Before the Sequel Aftermath has been shown. This is a short proof of concept title showing off Metroidvania gameplay with Sonic styled platforming. Sonic Chrono Adventure is a full title based upon this original demo that expands greatly on the concept. A 30 minute casual game has been expanded into a game that some have received 20+ hours of gameplay from and my aim is to show it to you fully in around an hour and a half. Between sequence breaks, large skips, extremely hard strats such as Zombie Hovers and route memorisation, this game offers many concepts explored in other Metroidvania runs while delivering a flavour of fast platforming and optimisation that Sonic speedruns are known for. While this run may be in its infancy, it’s quickly developing with the aim to optimise it as much as its predecessor. 3 April 10th - 7PM UK onwards April 11th - All day April 12th - All day
TheGreenViper8TheGreenViper8 Sonic Before the Sequel Aftermath Any% Sonic No Skips 0:11:00 PC USA Link SBTSA Sonic No Skips has been featured in the past few Sonic Speed marathons, and not much has changed since 2019 in terms of the route itself. Despite this, the game still remains a fun watch due to the length resulting in many fast tricks being strung together in a short space of time. It proves to have been a nice slot filler in the past so I am willing to provide a run of the game again this year for the same purposes. I also set a huge target on my back by getting WR 2 years in a row during this game’s previous showings at the event so if this gets in I will practice to the best of my ability to try and keep the streak running (I swear it was a fluke previously!) 6 $15 for a Tails No Skips run (adds around 4 minutes to the estimate if met, if not met then remove 4 minutes from the additional time). April 10th - 5PM UK onwards April 11th - All day April 12th - All day

Should have full availability within reason
muramura Sonic and the Secret Rings Any% 2:15:00 WiiU USA Link Being a sonic game that's never been shown off at a sonic speed, SatSR is one of the two story book games, featuring an rpg style level up system and wiimote motion controls. Though the early game can be slow, cool skips and optimal moment speeds up the mid and late game. 1 Friday after 5pm est Saturday all day Sunday all day
SuperSonicSuperSonic Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Sonic 0:30:00 Genesis USA Link Sonic 2 introduces the spin dash, which is the main mechanic to go fast. This run has about 30% glitches while the rest of the game is based on movement and execution; pretty similar to Sonic 1, but slightly faster. I don't know who else will submit this, but I am willing to race. 1 Friday night after 7pm PST. All day Saturday. Not available Sunday.
RavelRavel sonic the fighters Sonic 0:25:00 Arcade EUR Link I'm the WR holder and I can speedrun it blindfolded, also Sonic The Fighters is pretty fun to watch! 10 Saturday and Sunday between 3:00 P.M and 8:00 P.M. CET (Italy)
VoiDTTVVoiDTTV Sonic 3D Blast Best Ending 0:45:00 PC USA Link As a long-standing member of the IISM and runner of this game, it really never sees the light of day in most marathons. I hope to be able to change that and get more people to see the game. 3 Sadly my only day to run it will be on Sunday, but I’ll be available all day/evening that day to run.
drywalleaterdrywalleater Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Security Hall x25 0:30:00 PC USA Link Security Hall x25 is pretty self-explanatory: Playing Security Hall, a Rouge stage, 25 times in a row. I believe this should be shown at Sonic Speed 2020 as it is a little showcase of the stage RNG and how one can deal with it. In this stage, there are three levels of safes that contain, Blue(highest), Yellow(middle), and Red(bottom). Only one of these colors can be active and able to be opened, and as such I set the open safe color to yellow. Yellow safes not only contain the most pieces inside of them compared to the other two, but they allow for cool tech involving death strats. Death strats are viable because upon dying in a hunting stage, you keep the piece(s) you have already collected, but those not collected reroll, making it very likely you will get different pieces. Anyway, to change safe color you would have to go all the way back to the attic and flip the desired switch, and this can take 15-20 seconds. Why do that when you can just throw yourself into the air blower pits and respawn in seconds, likely with a piece that is either in yellow safes, or not in any safes at all? Overall, this is a pretty cool run and I would love to show off the death strats at Sonic Speed 2020. 0 I am available at any time during the event.
flyingfoxflyingfox Sonic 1 (2013) Tails: Beat The Game 0:25:00 Android Link A remastered version of the original Sonic 1 for the Genesis. New features include a spin dash, elemental shields and new routes thanks to mild tweaks to the level design to accommodate his game play. 0 Pretty sure I'm available on all days from 12pm - 8pm EDT. Will know more nearer the time.
flyingfoxflyingfox Sonic CD (2011) Tails: Good Future 0:30:00 PC Link A remastered version of the original Sonic CD released for the Sega CD. Tails is an unlockable playable character who has his move set including the spin dash from Sonic 3. Tails breaks the game and two bosses with his flying mechanics.. In this run you use the time travel mechanic to travel back to the past to destroy the machines to create a good future. 0 JP vs US music bid war Pretty sure I'm available on all days from 12pm - 8pm EDT. Will know more nearer the time.
sukimossukimos Sonic Heroes (PC) Team Sonic 1:00:00 PC USA Link it is pretty nice game to show in marathon with a lot of glitches. 5 sorry but my schedule is not certain. but for now, there is nothing.

CaptainCainerCaptainCainer Sonic Mania Solo Sonic 100% 1:10:00 PS4 USA Link Sonic solo 100% showcases not only every boss, but each of the special stages to collect the chaos emeralds and become super. 2 2pm-finish each day
FocusSightFocusSight Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) All Stories 3:10:00 X360 USA Link All Stories encapsulates everything special about Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) as a speedgame: Filled with loads to relax between hectic stages filled with glitches, skips and interesting setups, this category demonstrates the entirety of the base game from start to finish. Ranging from the pure movement and combat optimization of Shadow's Story to the frame-perfect glitchfest of Silver's Story and everything in-between, viewers can clearly track the development of each story as tricks and methods adapt to suit new levels, abilities and other challenges the game throws at you. By the end, the Last Story provides a worthwhile recap of every playable character's unique features, making All Stories feel truly complete as a run. My 7 years of experience and previous demonstration of Silver's Story No MSG% at Sonic Speed 2019 prove useful in keeping an audience entertained with unique detail and an energetic attitude to boot. I believe this would make All Stories a highlight of the event, something which in contrast to the loading screens, wouldn't bore people and instead keep them on the edge of their seat, waiting to see S06's next unexpected glitch or trick. 5 Xbox Profile Username Bidwar (max 15 characters) Donation Incentive: Glitch Exhibition (15 mins, after run is complete) Excluding Sunday from 2200-0000, all times work absolutely fine. Will be around at my campus that entire Friday + weekend, with 06 in tow!

ArgickArgick Sonic Mania Sonic & Tails - Good Ending 1:00:00 PC Link Sonic Mania is the latest 2D classic styled Sonic game that capture and improves the formula.

Xandre69Xandre69 Sonic Mania Ray 0:55:00 PC USA Link A run for this character has never been shown at a marathon of any sort as far as I know, let alone done at this level of play. Ray's movement is very unique as it allows him to traverse through levels very quickly with the use of his glide ability, which is able to carry insane speeds of horizontal momentum making him a broken character for speedruns. A few difficult/tricky parts of the run exist such as Puyo, OO2 boss skip, and TM in general (the skip for the last level involves two frame-perfect taps of the jump button at two specific frames). I have been grinding this category a good amount recently so I believe I can display a very good showcase for this character that clearly has a lot of potential but has never been really shown. 0 Available on all three days but I would prefer to run anywhere from 2PM-8PM EST and to either run on Friday (March 27) or Saturday (March 28)
NiczurNiczur Sonic Adventure (DX) Sonic's Story 0:35:00 PC EUR Link Because this game is great, the mechanics of spam spin dash is often criticized but it makes the speedrun very fast and interesting Dage4 (Race) 0 I am available (with my Region) : -Friday evening/night (8 p.m-3a.m) -Saturday (I can't 2p.m to 4:30p.m) -Sunday (from 6 p.m. I can no longer

Dage4Dage4 Sonic Adventure (DX) Sonic's Story 0:35:00 PC USA Link In this game, Sonic has a really fast move known as the spindash. This move is super fast, cause you can hit the buttons multiple times in order to repeat the same action. Pretty cool, huh? Oh, and there's also cool clips, large skips, and quite a butt load of tech and tricks too. Doesn't really matter when compared to the spindash, though. Niczur (race) 2 I will not be available at all on the 27th. I should be good to do it at anytime on the 28th/29th between 12PM - 11PM CST, however (unless sudden plans show up)
Dage4Dage4 Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Dark Story 0:40:00 PC USA Link Shadow, Eggman and Rouge all combine their powers to create a run that is both RNG-driven and rather autoscroll-ly at the same time! Will you let the 3 show you a little less tech in return for the epic elevator in Lost Colony? I guess we'll have to find out. Also FC skip. If I hit it, of course. 2 I will not be available at all on the 27th. I should be good to do it at anytime on the 28th/29th between 12PM - 11PM CST, however (unless sudden plans show up)

NachoAutistaNachoAutista Sonic Adventure (DX) Tails's Story 0:25:00 PC USA Link Tails' story is a short and fun cattegory to run, it has some glitches fun to watch, is easy to learn for the people. I never saw this cattegory in a Marathon, and I think this can be a really good speedrun for this marathon. 5 27th and 28th. 27th From 16:30 to 20:00 (GMT -3) 28th From 12:30 to 14:00 (GMT -3)

OldclovOldclov Classic Sonic Trilogy Knuckles - No Major Glitches 1:40:00 Genesis Link NMG trilogy runs have been quite a thing in the past months, specially played with Sonic. Here's a little change of pace. This run features a S1 romhack/mod that makes Knuckles playable with spindash, glide, climb, no speed cap, etc., which allows some different routes that makes Knuckles significantly faster in certain levels than Sonic. S2 and S3&K are still the official versions, played with Knuckles as well. 0 Friday: all day Saturday: all day Sunday: 12:00-18:00 EDT
ArcaniaCQArcaniaCQ Sonic Robo Blast 2: Shut Up and Get On It 2 Marathon Mode 1:10:00 PC Link This run has never been done before on a marathon and this run is quite fun!

stllrstllr Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Bingo 2:00:00 PC USA Link Bingo is a really cool play format showcasing several alternate missions and level routes that spice up the gameplay and truly showcase sa2's mechanics. Lock-out Team Bingo also has lots of strategy involved in goal selection and accounting for the strengths and weaknesses of both your team and your opponents, with enough randomness thrown in that no 2 bingos are quite the same.

drywalleaterdrywalleater Sonic Adventure 2: Battle Knuckles Centurion 2:10:00 PC USA Link Knuckles Centurion is a category where each Knuckles stage is played 20 times in a row for a total of 100 Knuckles stages. This run showcases the vastness of hunting stages RNG and the movement as well as strats used to mitigate it. Personally, I find Knuckles Centurions to be very fun and enjoy watching other do them too! In addition, if anyone else submits this category I would be down to race with them if they wanted. 0 No death strats (+20 minutes) An extra run of one of every stage blindfolded (+30 minutes) An extra run of one of every stage hintless (+15 minutes) I am available at any time during the marathon.

FocusSightFocusSight Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Silver's Story (No MSG) 1:00:00 X360 USA Link Arguably the most intense story in the game, Silver’s Story (No MSG%) is an escapade of a run, involving many frame perfect tricks, entertaining skips and hilarious moments that keep everyone engaged in spite of the decently lengthy load screens. Much like the other S06 runs, a clear development of tactics and movement emerges as the run progresses, enabling for two halves to emerge: pre-ETD and post-ETD Silver, demonstrating how even the slowest of characters casually can become the fastest with the aid of glitches. My experience with the game would allow for entertaining and informative commentary throughout, allowing all members with ranges of familiarity with the game to join and watch with joy. 4 Japanese vs English Voices [Bidwar] Silver: Glitch Exhibition [10 minutes after end of run] Everything but Sunday from 22:00-00:00 works for me.

And you also get to go out of bounds, run on trees, and see some cool-ass movement? Pretty weird game if you ask me. 2 Donation goal for hintless (will probably add like 5-10 minutes to the run, but hey, it's how the game was meant to be played :)) I will not be available at all on the 27th.
