Games Done Quick Charity organizers of the Speedrunner Festival decided with the timing and format of the next big marathon – Summer Games Done Quick 2022 (SGDQ 2022).
As has been announced, the Summer Games Done Quick 2022 will take place this year from June 26th to July 3rd in Bloomington (Minnesota). Applications to participate (also online) will be accepted until March 30th.
Games Done Quick notes that SGDQ 2022 is the first live marathon in two and a half years. The last such (AGDQ 2020) took place in January 2020. The hiatus came about due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The participants of the SGDQ 2022 must present proof of vaccination, protective masks and distance rules. The number of visitors to the festival as a whole will also be reduced.
In addition, the organizers reserve the right to change the rules of conduct for the guests of the event and, if necessary, to cancel the Offline SGDQ 2022.
The previous Games Done Quick marathon – Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 Online – set a record for raising funds for charity. Viewers have donated over $3.4 million to the nonprofit Prevent Cancer Foundation.
The money within the SGDQ 2022 will be raised for the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders, which provides emergency medical care to people in more than 70 countries around the world.
