The 2015 Summer Games Done Quick charity/live stream marathon event has begun.

If you're unfamiliar, Games Done Quick is an annual marathon where speed runners gather in a single location, speedrun an impressive library of games at impressive speeds, stream the whole thing, and do it all in the name of raising money for charities Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The stream has begun and goes until August 1, and you can watch it here.

This year, the event is taking place in Game Informer's backyard, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and we brought in a few of its speedrunner players to show off their skills and tell us all about speedrunners and the event. Follow the links to see speedruns with our own Ben Hanson, Tim Turi, and Ben Reeves as Games Done Quick speedrunners Chris Grant, Tony Ogbot, and Seckswrecks run us through Gunstar Heroes, Crystal's Pony Tales, and Bloodborne. You can also check out our report from the 2014 PAX Games Done Quick panel by heading here.
