F-Zero meetup at BSG marathon (19th - 27 August)
Reply to this Post

For the F-Zero meetup in 2017 the plan is to join the BSG speedrun marathon in The Netherlands. This event is not organized by F-Zero Central but we can get a nice F-Zero block there in the main marathon if we have some good runs submitted. There will be plenty opportunity for gaming behind the scenes as well of course. Housing and venue space all provided by BSG. Be sure to sign up on time for housing and if you want to run a game in the marathon because the deadline is May 7th. I suggest we aim for the last 3 days of the event 25 - 27 so all F-Zero players can be there at the same time for a cool F-Zero block.

See here for all info and submissions: http://www.speedrun.com/bsg_annual/forum

Please discuss if you plan to go and which dates and make sure to submit your games on time.

Hey everyone,


I'll be helping WMJ out where I can in getting this marathon to be a reality again this year. Currently we are looking to set the date for the event to be the weekend of July 14th - July 17th, but we are flexible on changing this date if it doesn't work out for most people.  I'll be playing at the marathon myself, but of course we are looking to have many more F-ZERO runners come and be a part of the event too. If specific F-ZERO games have enough runners, we will also be hosting competitions for those games. Whether it's a head to head single segment race, or 4P tourney like for FZX last event, runners will get a chance to bring out their best and have fun with fellow friends and rivals in person.


At the moment, WMJ and I would like to set two deadlines. The first is to find out those who are interested in going to the event and staying at a hostel.  The deadline for this will be March 31st. After finding out who is interested in going and staying at a hostel, we will then book a place that is nearby the event space. There are a couple options at the moment. One is a hostel that can take up to 18 people for about 380 Euro per night. For a three day weekend, that could work out to be 60 Euro/person (for the whole weekend) with 18 people attending.  There are also other options available if we have more or less people who can go. Ultimately, we are aiming to keep the housing cost at a maximum of 100 Euro/person for the event. WMJ will be updating the OP with information on hostels in the area for that weekend.


After the March 31st deadline, people who are looking to go to the event will need to organize a place to stay and transportation to the event space on their own.


The 2nd deadline is May 1st. This is the last day to sign up to be a part of the marathon.

Hey guys. I appreciate both of you organizing this great event again! I'm very excited to come aswell.
I'm pretty sure all dates will work for me, don't have any big plans around that time


For the games I want to participate in, it kinda depends on what others submit aswell. But these are the games I could potentially do:
F-Zero GX
F-Zero X (Multiplayer only)
F-Zero Climax
F-Zero AX

As we get closer to the submission deadline I'll update these with more info and estimates

Hello everyone, I will gladly come to the F-zero meetup in July.
The dates are okay for me, however, since I have to work on Friday/Monday and I don't live too far away, I don't think I need to stay three nights in Utrecht. Friday night and saturday night should be okay for me, or even just saturday night.
If anyone else is in the same situation, we could maybe book something together, else I'll just pay my share of the hostel and maybe not sleep there all three nights.

I mainly play GX and would gladly play on stream or participate in competitions.
I'd gladly play X too, but I'm a filthy casual in that game.

See you all in July !

Bumping this thread to bring attention to the update in the OP. The marathon is now merged with the BSG (Benelux Speedrunner Gathering). WMJ has updated the OP with all the info on how to submit.
