Forums  /  The Site  /  Requesting Marathons (Locked)

@fGeorjjefGeorjje Please let us know once you've settled on a date, then we'll add the marathon.


I've updated the settings you were asking for and here's the info again in case you needed it:

Requesting for Retro Rainbow May event to be added to the list.

Running from May 23rd to May 24th. From 10am EST Friday to 10pm EST Sunday Night.
Accepting both retro and modern speed games (we just like alliteration, ok!)
Will be benefitting the Trevor Project, an LGBTQIA+ Suicide Hotline/help line for LGBTQ+ individuals and their families. Discord is: https:/​/​discord.​gg/​PXueGjM

twitter is @retro(two underscores)rainbow
Twitch is underscores)rainbow


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!


@Luke99Luke99 Unfortunately at the moment there isn't, but hopefully this can be pushed into being a thing soon.

Venue: Online
Charity: Direct Relief (COVID-19)

@EdTheRedHeadEdTheRedHead - Done, @TheBadSpeedrunTheBadSpeedrun will need to enable Email Authentication in their account settings before they can be added:


Marathon: Speed Stuff 4 Charity 7
Type: Online Marathon
Purpose of Marathon: Speedruns, glitch exhibitions, and more to raise money for charity!
Charity: Direct Relief (most likely, haven't made a firm decision but this is the leading choice).
Dates: Sept. 4th - 6th 2020 (potentially the 7th depending on amount of submissions/length of runs as it's a holiday weekend for the US).
Stream Channel: https:/​/​www.​twitch.​tv/​speedstuff4charity
Mods: Myself, @nesnes, and @pinerpiner

Notes: Figured I'd add in that we've had 3 past marathons added before, being Speed Stuff 4 Charity - Winter 2018 (/ss4c-w18), Speed Stuff 4 Charity 5 (/ss4c5) and Speed Stuff 4 Charity 6 (/ss4c6). I am wondering who/where I can request to make a marathon team (see: if that's at all possible? I know Pac used to do that kind of thing a while back, not sure if that's still applicable now and what the requirements are for qualifying to have a marathon team on SRC.

If any other info is required, please let me know!

@DunkelGotikDunkelGotik Here you go:
You can add the other moderators yourself if necessary.


i've made a small speed run marathon based on arcades called The Arcade-A-Thon where speedrunners can race against the clock from 6 games back to back, i would like to give speedrunners an old school challenge on arcades. is it possible that my speed run marathon can be a thing for this community?

@PlanetaryashesPlanetaryashes For the purposes of this thread, marathons are planned events like Games Done Quick, ESA, etc. where various speedruns are presented over the course of a few days, and we have a few specific requirements for this listed in the first post of this thread.

What you're describing requires a leaderboard, not a marathon page. Looks like you've already submitted a game request for this.

Hello new marathon request here!

Name: Fastest Furs Fall Festival 2020
Venue: Online
Charity: Trans Lifeline
Date: November 12-15
Mods: @moonblazewolfmoonblazewolf , @ShockwveShockwve , @LaurieDBunnykinsLaurieDBunnykins , @PodzPodz , @oasusoasus

We are also interested in using for donations (pending response from the charity for a direct donation link).

First time using SRC for our events (but I have been a part of past events that used it), so please let me know if you need anything else! I am going to ping all the mods listed above on our discord to verify they have enabled email verification.

UPDATE: I just heard back from the charity with a direct donation link so we should be good to go there. 🙂
