Zane Hodge: Adventures in Fundraising

Announcing the Next Big ThingFor the past 20 years, Zane Hodge has taught English, Film, and Bible for Mississippi Delta Community College.  When he is not teaching, or pastoring Centerville Baptist Church, he can be found swimming laps at Twin Rivers or running the streets of Greenwood or lifting weights in his backyard gym.
10 years ago, Zane started the Chicot Challenge, an annual, open water marathon swim which he uses for raising awareness of diabetes and funds for the Diabetes Foundation of MS.  He has, in past years swum with the names of the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi's Kandu Kids sharpied onto him for inspiration, and swam 23 miles continuously in 2016.  

As a change of pace for 2021, he ran and later biked from his home in Greenwood, Mississippi to the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi's office in Ridgeland, Mississippi.  This year he is teaming up with Tyler Kirk for the "Crazy Man Quadrathalon".

What is quadrathon? It is a triathlon (swimming, cycling, and running in that order) plus a powerlifting meet. A powerlifting meet is a max squat, bench, and deadlift in that order. We, however, are upping the ante. We are adding a lift, the log press, to make our meet four lifts instead of three. Why? Because we can and because it works with the them of four.
The triathlon will be 66 miles consisting of a one mile swim, a 55 mile bicycle ride, and a ten mile run. The run, however, will be broken up into four runs. In keeping with the theme of four, the swim will also be in four parts. The whole event will go something like this:
5:30 a.m. meet at Plate City Gym and do a 2.8 mile wakeup run
6:00 a.m. powerlifting meet
7:30 a.m. 2.0 mile run to the pool at Twin Rivers
8:00 a.m. four one/fourth mile swims (one warmup, two for time, and one cool down)
8:45 a.m. 2.0 mile run back to Plate City Gym
9:30 a.m 55 mile bicycle ride
2:00 p.m. 3.2 mile run

finish 2:45
