The only speedrunning marathon with absolutely no runs by design!
About The Event
If you've considered submitting to a speedrunning event but you've always been too scared to apply, this event is absolutely for you! We encourage runners to submit as many games, categories, races and showcases as they can, completely safe in the knowledge that their submission is guaranteed to be rejected! There are no rules around what games or categories you can submit, beyond Oengus's terms of service.
The marathon will take place on Mindez's Channel on the weekend of October 22nd - 23rd, starting at 10 AM BST on Saturday and going through to 10 PM BST on Sunday. We'll be running for the full 36 hours!
All weekend we'll be raising money for the Trevor Project, helping them in their mission to provide support for LGBTQ youth mental health.

At Reject-A-Thon, we take our social responsibilities very seriously. We consider ourselves to be completely inclusive of race, nationality, gender identity, and all other possible characteristics of a run and runner. We can guarantee no special treatment for staff, volunteers, friends, or popularity when it comes to deciding which games to accept. After the marathon we'll be publishing a report providing statistics to prove our commitment to this guarantee.
