Register Today!

 Registration for the 2021 virtual Hom 100 is now open!


The great thing about virtual races is that you can do the distance all at once or you can stretch the distance out over multiple activities (or weeks/months). You decide how much you want to run/walk/skip/bike/skate to meet the distance goal.

Also, no one is keeping your time - this is all on your honor. Yeah, we trust you :-)


Every participant gets a sweet event medal (above) just for supporting the event. You have the option to purchase a race t-shirt ($20) and/or a Hom 100 pint glass ($15) to help support us even more. All money raised from registrations and merchandise purchases will be donated to the ALS Association - Arizona Chapter in memory of Tony.

Thanks in advance for supporting the Hom 100 and keeping Tony's memory alive. We may have a small group of folks running the course loop in late February so stay tuned for details. In the meantime, you can register for the 2021 Virtual Hom 100 by clicking THIS LINK.

2021 Hom 100

 


Who can't wait for 2020 to be over? Well, we're approaching another year and another opportunity to remember Tony. The details of the event are still being worked out but it will largely be virtual this year due to well, do I really have to say it?!

The great news is that there will be definitely be swag.

You can run short.

You can run long.

Either way, you get goodies and we'll be raising money for the ALS Association Arizona Chapter.

Details to come...

2020 Hom 100 -Save the Date!

Set your calendars for the first weekend in February to get loopy with me and my friends! Every year we get together to honor a great man who was taken from us too soon. Tony Hom was a dear friend to my and many others in our neighborhood.

Just like last year, you can run, skip, walk, ride, crab-walk, scooter or hoverboard your way around the 1.87 mile Freeman Farms loop. Go as long or as short as you want - completely up to you.

My goal used to be 100 miles. But these bones just don't have in them to do that any more. I try for 100k (62 miles) but even that is hard. Now, we just go as far as we can in 12-hours, drink beer, sleep a little and have fun. It's what Tony would have loved to do if he were here (no, not really - he hated running!) :-)

Anyway, come join me in the fun and festivities. We'll start at midnight on 2/8 and go until noon. Immediately after, we'll have a potluck lunch at the park near our place.

The Facebook event is here. The logistics and event details are here.

Squad Goals

This year's Hom 100 is going to be a bit different. Being injured means I'll have to rely on my crew to help me bank the normal 62 miles. Everyone is encouraged to put together a team - friends, family or coworkers will work just fine. Team up and put in some miles. What ever each person does gets added up so that your cumulative total is compared to every other team participating.

For example:

Team member 1 does 20 miles
Team member 2 does 3 miles
Team member 3 does 12 miles
----------------------------------------
Team total = 35 miles


So rally your squad and get ready to put in some miles. Remember, we don't care if you're running, walking, riding or crab-crawling so long as you're not on a motorized or electric vehicle (e.g., must be human-powered).

Comment below if you know who's on your squad. Don't forget a cool team name either!!

Prizes will be given out for:

  1. Most miles
  2. Fewest miles
  3. Best costumes
  4. Best team name
  5. Largest team

Something new for 2019

I have a small problem.

Stress fracture :-(
It will be at least the middle of January before I'm able to put any miles on my feet due to this injury. Which means that there won't be any 100k run for me this year at the Hom 100. Yes, I'm bummed about the injury but I think I've found a new way to honor Tony's life and legacy at this years event.

This year we'll be creating teams of participants who will collectively work towards achieving their own 100k (62 miles) distance over the course of 12 hours. Teams can be made up of runners, walkers or cyclists...just no gas-powered or electric vehicles :-)


We'll unofficially start at midnight on February 2 and start collecting miles. We'll break at 8 am to gather up other friends and neighbors (and probably have some donuts) and then continue on until noon. The Davenport's will host a BBQ starting at 1 pm once everything is broken down and cleaned up at the main aid station.

There is still some work to do in preparation but I'm looking forward to seeing how things come together and whether this format will be more inclusive and fun for everyone involved. If you're interested in helping out at the aid station or contributing anything for the event (all food and supplies are donated), please let me know. We love the help!
