Each year, the Bexar Chapter of TSPE and ASCE San Antonio unite to organize an entire week of events during Engineers Week (E-Week).

WGI was proud to sponsor and participate in this year’s activity which was deemed “Revenge of the Nerds” 5K Family Fun Run!

Members from the WGI San Antonio office met up to compete against other AEC firms in the area. Participants spent time mingling and exchanging some company “swag” before the race started.

The race kicked off promptly at 8 am with about 70 participants in total all out to brave the cold together for the run.

After the runners finished the race, they congregated together to check out their posted times and enjoy some breakfast tacos, a uniquely fitting reward as they crossed the finish line.
