Hekathon is a marathon organized by a few speedrunning friends to raise money to help those who need it get to ESA Summer. Any left-over money goes towards a donation during ESA summer. This is the fourth year in a row we've held it. This will require a donation tracker.

I apologize if this isn’t the right place to ask- Is there a list on SRC of upcoming / planned marathons? Besides this thread and searching the site for a specific name, is there any other way to see a list of upcoming speedrunning events? Any help or insight would be appreciated! Thanks!
