community speedrunning marathon dedicated to the Need for Speed series, now a confirmed annual event.

please don't just edit the 2019 page into 2020 - that's what happened last year 2018->2019 and we lost the 2018 history due to that 🙁

@ShikenNuggetsShikenNuggets i am planning to close the preferences form on may 3rd 10am CEST and announce the dates + open submissions at 12am CEST after a quick review, hence why i'm requesting it in advance.

looking at the responses right now the most likely date appears to be aug 7-9, but again that could change with a couple votes. could you create it with that and i'll update it on may 3rd if need be?

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.

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: https://www.speedrun.com/degendash) 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!
