Step 1. Choose your Marathon
You can choose any game and play on any console or PC. You must play during Fri 8 to Sun 10 March 2024 and raise donations on your JustGiving page to complete the Marathon.
Choose your marathon distance: 6 hours, 12 hours, or 24 hours. Split up your gaming over the 8-10 March to include breaks and rest. For example, you could complete a 6 hour marathon in two 3 hour sessions on different days. Think carefully before committing to a single 12 or 24 hour session, and if you need to, stop.
