Summer is starting to kick off here in the US and with it comes the abundance of free time. So with it, I was hoping to propose a new marathon that we could adopt:
This marathon, which we're planning to place between the end of ESA (July 5) and the start of SGDQ (July 26), will be a mass-collection of speedruns of all of your favorite (gold)source games, by all your favorite SourceRunners. There will be no donations since this marathon is purely for fun.
We started to compile a list of people that we know run certain games. In the upcoming weeks we can start to narrow the selection of who's running what, and start to confirm the schedule later in the end of June.
We want to have all of the original Valve-created games as well as some mods to help make the marathon flow and add variety.
So if you see your name on that list, and are free between July 5 to July 26, feel free to sign up here with your availability. Likewise, if you don't see your name on the list, but run any of the games on there, you may sign up as well with your availability. The days you're inputting helps us determine when the marathon will be taking place.
The marathon would be taking place on the SourceRuns Twitch account. So if you would like, you can follow that for updates!
This is something new for all of us, and this first try will be a gauge of interest from both runners and viewers. So, here's to one huge Source block of a marathon!
