 +**The Final Fantasy Marathon (July 2009)** ​is the 12th marathon by TheSpeedGamers and the 8th for a charity. Many people have proclaimed that such a feat is impossible, however, TheSpeedGamers made a great effort and were close to success. The original goal was $20,000, however, when the goal was reached in 72 hours it was raised to $50,000. For this marathon, many [[community:user_groups:​staff|staff members]] came to Texas to help with the marathon, including Gwellin, Localretard,​ and Baltes.

 +TheSpeedGamers had multiple news appearances during this marathon. In [[http://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=mIjTLbN9YHQ|one of these]], Rob was asked to describe the Final Fantasy series. His description given while lacking sleep and also playing a game went: "​It'​s a fantasy world, where you have to save the world from being destroyed... pretty much."​\\
