Why is this a draw?

I thought there was no limit on number of moves in chess? I'm obviously not playing seriously here but it's not drawn by 50 move rule or threefold repetition.

Lichess imposes an automatic draw after 300 moves. See lichess.org/forum/general-chess-discussion/lichess-300-move-rule-forced-draw
