Our marathon "gorlsgoFAST" will put women (and genderqueer) speedrunners in the spotlight for a good cause. Please join our discord if you are submitting a run and feel free to contact our team members umbrellajil, Jadeite, Cat, InkSlime, or MetroidCrime if you have any immediate questions and we will get back to you as soon as we can!!
This year we are happy to announce we are also partnering with MetroidCrime and her "Lady Arcaders" group as well! Please check out their twitch page and discord if you are a fan of community and gaming in all forms! They will also be putting together charity events this year, as well. If you're interested in joining the Lady Arcaders collective, please send a private message to Lady Arcaders on Twitter or Instagram for an invite to the private Discord server.
This is our second marathon that we're putting together, and we've chosen the charity "Nomi Network" for this one. This charity works to empower and educate women and people globally who are at-risk of becoming victims of human trafficking and modern slavery.
Last year, we were able to raise over 3k$ to help homeless and needy women, people, and their families. We are hoping to make another big impact this year!!
Please submit multiple games if you can, just so we can try to have more of a variation of games being run. Thanks in advance for that <3
We are hoping to do 3 days worth of runs this year going from:
Oct 14 2pm - Oct 15 5am (EST)
Oct 15 2pm - Oct 16 5am (EST)
Oct 16 2pm - Oct 17 5am (EST)
Submissions close Sept 24th!! <3
