Old School RuneScape players are excited to see the return of the Speedrun Cup for the third time! The Speedrun Cup sees some of the best Old School RuneScape players demonstrate their raw talent as they race to slay some of the game’s most iconic bosses.

Each Speedrun Cup gains more and more traction. This year Jagex has partnered with EVScape, Hooti & Crusader Talent for the event. The first Speedrun Cup saw players compete for a $2000 prize pool, whilst the second iteration of the event changed the prize to a whopping 2,250,000,000 GP – RuneScape’s in-game currency. The upcoming Speedrun Cup sees a return of a real money cash prize, exceeding the previous offering, with a generous $5000 prize pool.

The official Speedrun Cup 3 trailer has Old School RuneScape fans excited for the upcoming event. The trailers creators, Uber and Hooti have collaborated seamlessly to show off the 2007 version of RuneScape in all of its old-school glory.
