AGDQ 2024 Schedule Revealed, Includes Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Run

It's almost time to once again raise money for charity through the magic of speedrunning.


The Games Done Quick organization has announced the schedule for Awesome Games Done Quick 2024, the charity speedrunning marathon's return as an in-person event, which will take place January 14-21.

The full schedule features over 100 different speed runs across multiple eras--from the NES days to recent releases like The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom--while also spanning multiple consoles and PC. The event will raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, which the AGDQ marathon has contributed to since 2011.
