For the past two years, the Done Quick Summer Games charity marathon, as well as sister show Awesome Games Done Quick, have been held remotely online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, that is finally changing with some obvious changes to the event itself.
The organization announced that SGDQ 2022 will be held in person for the first time since 2019. According to His websiteThe week-long marathon will be hosted in Bloomington, Minnesota from June 26 to July 3, with attendance registration opening April 18. SGDQ also confirmed that it will support Doctors Without Borders again during the marathon, the organization they have been supporting since 2011.
While the full list of precautions will be available in a few days, the organization has already confirmed that it will require proof of the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as KN95 or N95 masks in order to attend the event. Social distancing and reduced capacity to attend will also be required.
In addition, the organization said it will also allow a certain number of remote transmissions for the event, although it has not confirmed the exact ratio of personal sprint to remote speed. All submissions will be open from March 21st. While the change to an in-person event will certainly be welcome for fans who missed it, it’s important to note that with the uncertainty about new cases moving forward, those plans are pretty intense well that may change in the months leading up to June.
