Change 962729 had a related patch set uploaded (by Superpes15; author: Superpes15):

[operations/mediawiki-config@master] [enwiki] Throttle exemption for Editathon

I'll try to schedule the patch asap (07:00 UTC) but I can't guarantee that I will be online. Btw, please, remember to open a task at least 1/2 week(s) before the event next time, even if you don't know the IP, as per instructions. Thanks ;)
