Right as 2017 has officially kicked off, the annual Awesome Games Done Quick marathon is back again with its winter speedrunning marathon event, and all this week you can watch live and join in the action.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2017 has officially gone live, and all week long (until Sunday, January 15th), gamers can watch and experience amazing speedruns of a wide variety of titles, with donations from the event (and by viewers) to benefit the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2017 is currently running now through January 15th, 2017 at the Hilton Wasghinton Dallies Airport Hotel in Herndon, VA. Even if you can’t make the trip to check out the event in-person, you can still experience the full week of amazing speedruns by watching through Twitch.

The annual event has been running since 2010, with the Awesome Games Done Quick group having organized 14 speedrunning marathon events so far and raise over $8 million for a variety of charity organizations since its founding.
