The Games Done Quick (GDQ) marathons play host to a multitude of amazing speedruns spanning every genre you can imagine, and the upcoming summer marathon, taking place in a couple of months, is no exception. GDQ has recently released their schedule for the event and it is packed with Legend of Zelda speedruns. Beginning June 24 at 12:30pm EST, the event will last until the early morning of July 1.
While I greatly encourage everyone to watch as much of the marathon as you can, many don’t have the luxury. So if you’re partial to Zelda runs the list below contains all of the Zelda titles scheduled to appear. Please note: The following times are approximate and may change depending on how ahead or behind schedule the marathon is.

- 4:50pm – Ocarina of Time Bingo by Runnerguy2489
Seven different Zelda speedruns in one marathon isn’t too bad! The Ocarina of Time Bingo in particular should be a fun watch. Runners of this category get a randomly generated Bingo card with different tasks to complete. The objective is to score a Bingo, so participants have to formulate routes on the fly and plan how to get a Bingo as quickly as possible.
