Summer Games Done Quick will run from 23 through 30 June 2019 and the organisation has released the full schedule already so fans will be able to tune in to speedruns of their favourite games. The final day features one massive run though.

Summer Games Done Quick 2019 will kick off on 23 June 2019 with the pre-show at 17:30 CEST / 15:30 UTC / 10:30 CDT and the first speedrun will commence one hour later. It will feature the remaster of the PlayStation classic - Spyro Reignited Trilogy and ChrisLBC will be the first speed runner of the event.

Naturally, the first and the last day of SGDQ will be the shortest ones since the event will span 24 hours of each day other than those two. Most notably, both days will last roughly the same but the final day will feature only one, massive run.

The run is set on a 06:10:00 timer and puwexil will be doing this speedrunning equivalent of a marathon. The featured game will be Chrono Trigger and the runner will attempt to finish it with any percentage but will have to do it without utilising any glitches.

It will be the longest run during the event but MajinPhil comes in second with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask speedrun that will also be quite a feat on a 05:15:00 timer. MajinPhil doesn't have the "glitchless" restriction but will be attempting a 100 per cent completion.

All of the other runs will be notably shorter though, since all of them will take up less than four hours and most runs will be under 20 minutes.

One of the quickest runs, with a timer set on just 10 minutes will be reaching 999,999 score in Tetris - and the speed run will be done by a bot. It is the TASBot, a quite popular creation in the speedrunning world that debuted on SGDQ eight years ago, back in 2011.

You can check out the full schedule, filled with curious runs on the official GDQ website  and you can tune in to the live stream on the organisations Twitch channel .
