Monday Morning Wellness Activity – December 11, 6:30am-7:30am

Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), located in San Antonio, is a long-time supporter of SoACE.  SwRI

operates a full-service onsite fitness center as a benefit for its employees.  SwRI wants to provide one of their amazing group exercise instructors for the Monday Morning Wellness Activity.  At no additional costs, you are welcome to join your colleagues for a low-impact cardio session.  We are looking forward to this morning workout and getting our metabolism off to a great start.

Fun Run – December 12, 6:30am-7:30am

If you’re ready to start your day right with a run or walk along San Antonio’s beautiful river walk, then make plans to attend the SoACE Fun Run/Walk on Tuesday, December 12, at 6:30 am.  Our group will meet by the coffee shop in the lobby and will leave the hotel at 6:30 sharp.

We will cross East Commerce street once out of the hotel and take the stairs down to the river walk.  We will follow an out-and-back path for a 3 mile total distance, but feel free to shorten or lengthen your distance as needed.  The river walk path is paved for several miles.  This map  gives you an idea of the location.  For reference, our starting location is at the top of the page near the Rivercenter Mall.


This year, the first 10 fun-run registrants will receive a free fun-run t-shirt! If you have any questions about the fun-run, please contact Charlie Wilder at


Tuesday Evening Event – Night in Old San Antonio featuring The Spazmatics – December 12, 6:30pm-10:30pm

The 2017 Tuesday Night Event will showcase the rich history of San Antonio by recreating an annual

festival called “Night in Old San Antonio” (NIOSA).  NIOSA (nI-oh-Sah) blends Texan and Mexican

cultures for a memorable night under the Texas stars.  You will enjoy an authentic atmosphere of the best that San Antonio has to offer.  Your money or tickets will not be good at this event…just bring your name badge and your Tuesday Night Evening ticket.  To top it all, we will have The Spazmatics for entertainment.

The Spazmatics will play hits from the 80s and will keep us pumped up throughout the night even if you don’t remember when the Rubik’s Cube came out or watched “Back to the Future” in a movie theater.
