Saturday 5 June 2021-Sunday 6 June 2021 the Red Cross Charity Marathon following on from the week long ECF Chess for all Festival (30 May-4 June).
The Red Cross Marathon raised £12,000 last year. Free to enter, but the presence of a Donation cell on the entry form tells you what it’s all about. Put your hand in your pocket if you wish, or get your friends to sponsor you, so much a game, or whatever. The event is a 24 hour Arena Tournament. Games are 5 minute blitz on chess.com. Play as you please, for the whole 24 hours or dip in or out any time you like.
The Festival is aimed at those playing online who are relatively new to chess.
