Running/Walking Groups at SOLIDWORKS World 2018

Hi Everyone,


As is tradition, we'd like to promote people getting together for running/walking at SOLIDWORKS World 2018.


Let's use this thread to coordinate who is interested, where we should meet, etc. Since SWW is at the same location as last year, I'll use the same information as last year to plan this year. Since the hotels are spread out, we had two meetup spots for both walks and runs, so we will start with that plan again. That information is at the bottom of this message; I'll fill in the table of potential participants as I get responses in the thread.


So, if you are interested in either walking or running, please respond to this post with the following information

  1. Are you interested in running or walking?
  2. At which hotel are you staying?


Of course, if you have any other comments, questions, suggestions, please feel free to post them.


As always, I'm looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting many new ones at SWW2018!
