The SpeedDocsAThon (SDAT) speedrunning marathon, hosted by Speed Docs, is raising money for Save the Children across two weekends. The second half will take place from September 1st to September 3rd, and feature runs of both Pokémon Scarlet/Violet, and Pokémon Ruby, with runners attempting to complete the games, or a specific objective within the game, as fast as possible. The event can be watched from their Twitch Channel.
