The Ironman is a competition that we've been running since the Theros block. We sanction six prerelease events for each Magic: The Gathering set, and for the Theros release event we had a player ask us what we'd do if they played through all six events. We didn't think he'd do it, so we told him that if he make it through all six events we'd sell him a booster box at our cost. Its no small feat. We started our events on Midnight Saturday morning and ran four events, back to back for 24 hours. Then we run the remaining two events on Sunday at Noon and 6PM. That's 36 hours of Magic in 48 hours. Aside from one break between the last Saturday event (which often runs late) and the start of the Noon event on Sunday, there's no stopping.
Now, we're allowed to run even more prerelease events, so the Ironman have to complete any 6 events during the weekend to qualify for the free booster box.
