Do you love speedrunning? Do you love helping out charities? Are you Australian? Have you ever gotten the speedrunning blues at the end of SGDQ thinking to yourself “oh no, another 5-6 months without a speedrunning charity event…. WHAT WILL I DO!?”
If you answered yes to any of these questions than we have an event for you! The Australian Speedrun Marathon (ASM) is on this year in 2 different locations in Adelaide, SA this July . The event will benefit Beyond Blue, a non-profit organisation working to address issues around mental health for everyone! I’m sure we can all get on board with supporting such a wonderful charity!
From the 2nd to the 4th of July ASM will be held at the UniSA MOD Studio in the heart of Adelaide CBD! Then on the 6th and 7th of July the event will move to AVCon. Which means you get a full weekend of anime, videogames and speedruns!
The UniSA event will be free entry, so you can come along and get into the hype of the runs. The AVCon event can be accessed with your AVCon ticket (Tickets for AVCon can be found here).
If you can’t make it to the event you can also tune into the entire event on Twitch, as well as donate to the event!
Of course if you do speedrun games, you are encouraged to submit a game for the marathon (Submission Form). Submissions are now open and ASM would love for you to submit a game and join the Australian speedrun community. Submissions close 13th of April at 11:59pm Adelaide time. You could have your run at the event, which in turn will help out the amazing charity!
We hope to see you all at UniSA and AVCon, this July!
