The rally will still run 24 actual hours, which will be 25 hours on your computer clock if your state or country recognizes DST and it is starting on that date. To underscore the confusion, IronBits home state, Arizona, is one of the few U.S. states to not recognize DST.
So, for example, I'll start at 1 PM CST and end at 2 PM CDT, right?

GMT doesn't change. The time zones where GMT is the standard may go to GMT+1 during the summer, but GMT itself doesn't change.
