The 502 Krew RPG Speedrun Marathon is now over after finishing its third day. The final day had good runs of Ys Origin, Megaman Battle Network 3, Pokemon Red, and the last part of Treasure of Rudra, as well as a four way race on the Pokemon Trading Card Game. The goal of the marathon was to gather $800 to send some of the group’s runners to SGDQ 2015, and at the end they’ve raised over $965, completing their goal. Below you’ll find a list of all the games played during the marathon, their runners, and their times in chronological order.
