Marathon: Night of The Horror Speedruns
Venue: Online
Stream: https://www.​twitch.​tv/deluxerus
Discord: https://discord.​gg/Tja7Z8Y
Date: 7 July
Mods: @deluxerus , @ToxicTT
This is a small (12-18h) online marathon for horror games and games with strong horror/moody atmosphere. We lack experience with hosting marathons, so this marathon is more of a test for us before aiming for something bigger (2 or more days) in that theme/style.


@deluxerus @Daravae I removed the "Night of The Horror" marathon. Barely over 12 hours does not warrant a marathon page, a marathon should at least be for a full day (that is also not a self-hosting marathon where you would do all the runs).


@Dangerless Before submitting I have read your conversation with warm_ham with the same topic, so I checked ham's twitch and it appears that ham's 1st marathon took only 7h and ham's 2nd marathon has runs submitted for around ~10h marathon, so I assume you ask for a confirmation that we're both not planning to play our games for 12h and yes - we're both not planning to submit more than 1-2h each and other 8h-16h are purely for other runners. 12h is just our guess for how little submissions we can get, since the dates are quite stiff (we are both busy after 7th july for a few months so it's our last chance for this summer and early autumn).

@deluxerus I was not aware of that person not doing a 24-hour marathon, I originally thought they were doing a self-hosting marathon where they played the games however like I said I was not aware of the fact that they did not maintain the marathon to be at least a day minimum after their marathon was accepted here.

This is why we are trying to put more care into the acceptance of these marathons, though in terms of your marathon request if the marathon cannot last for a full day we aren't accepting it. We rather not be making the same mistakes again as per the previous request, obviously I'm aware you can't guarantee anything but at the moment I am discussing this with other site staff about how we want to start handling future requests and where users can potentially report marathons not following a small set of guidelines.

As soon as something is agreed upon we'll see what we can do.


In defense of ham's effort, very high requirements (24h) are going to kill a lot of niche marathons, especially if the games in that niche are short in general. It will also force hosts to accept more very long runs just to meet these requirements, so maybe runners count is a more appropriate value. That's my IMHO.

Name: Yuuto Ichika Saves Lives
Venue: Online
Cause: Save the Children - https:/​/​www.​savethechildren.​org/​

Mods: @ChairGTables, @Sonii

This marathon is being done due to a bullying incident, where a kid was endlessly bullied by numerous people for the subpar quality of her drawing of her original character Yuuto Ichika. To prove them wrong about the kid's creativity being pointless, her original character will represent the marathon, raising charity funds for Save The Children in order to save lives. With this, the kid will see that her efforts were not pointless, as it contributed to the good of this world. I'm also doing this marathon to introduce the non-speedrunning portion of my community to how fun speedrunning could be. I've been running a temporary Google Form for submissions here until a possible proper marathon page is made.

This is a revival of a marathon series dedicated to solely LEGO licensed games, we have a very large community of passionate runners scattered throughout a large variety of games, we've only once been featured at GDQ events, back in 2011 in a glitchless run and as such our community would love a chance to showcase our games for a good cause. We're currently in the process of organizing the marathon on our discord: https:/​/​discord.​gg/​0nCWhvIFSY3nKJDh .

Also from this point onwards we've adjusted the requirements with marathons, everyone can find this information on the first post of this thread. Eventually all information regarding marathon guidelines/rules will be moved towards one of the SRC rule pages that we have. Questions regarding this should be made in a new thread.


@Dangerless Thanks for accepting the marathon. I am having a bit of trouble with setting up the donation tracker page though, as I am unable to input anything on the PayPal email address section. Is this something that only admins can set up? I've read from another thread that only admins can have this approved. If so, the Paypal email I would like to associate with it would be Once again, thanks!

@ChairGTablesChairGTables You will need to directly get into contact with Pac, which you can do so via e-mail in the about page or send him a DM in the discord server. https:/​/​discord.​gg/​0h6sul1ZwHVpXJmK

I'd very much like to request an allowance for an online marathon called Speed Gaming for Animals (Or just SGA Marathon).
As the name suggests, we'd love support our wildlife, making the World Wildlife Foundation, WWF, a perfect candidate. The marathon will take place on the weekend of August 10th - 11th and will be entirely online. However all of the crew behind the marathon will be located in the same location thoughout, to make sure it all runs smoothly through the night.

We expect the marathon to run for 48 hours with no breaks. However, if we don't manage to get enough submissions to fill out the entire thing, we may have breaks in between.

Regarding the channel the marathon will be hosted on, we are currently negotiating with a third party channel, but the worst case scenario is that it will be streamed on my own channel (

All the runs in the final schedule will be performed by runners that have submitted to the marathon. This is not for self promotion and is entirely for charity.

Hi! We're organising the fifth edition of SpeedyFists Marathon.

I have no idea about the requirements to have a dedicated page as other marathons have ( https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​uksg or https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​bsg ), but it would be interesting to have one.

Regarding the new marathon:

Name: Speedyfists - Autumn 2019
Theme: Online Marathon based on Fighting Games
Dates: 18th - 20th October 2019
Length: 3 Days
Charity: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Stream: https:/​/​www.​twitch.​tv/​speedyfists

@MaiguelsMaiguels Here you go: https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​Speedyfists_Autumn_2019

Regarding the addition of teams. Personally, I would rather leave it to Admins to deal with the addition of teams, so if you're dead set on it I would suggest potentially contacting Pac. We don't really want to handing out this permission to just anyone, ideally.

@RamValGamingRamValGaming Could more information be provided about the marathon? The amount of days seems kind of unsure, to me. Who will the mods be?
