Why a Mindfulness Triathlon?

The Mindfulness Triathlon is designed to promote health, wellness, and healing by exploring alternative holistic treatments for anxiety and depression disorders. Running, yoga, and meditation are among the most popular natural treatments for depression and anxiety. Healing of the mind, body, and soul can be experienced through these practices.

Our event will raise awareness and help destigmatize anxiety, depression and other mental health illnesses. We will to stand in solidarity with those in our community who may be suffering from these conditions. This race will encourage those suffering to explore the concept of complimentary and alternative treatments. These mountains of anxiety and depression are difficult to face alone. Our Mindfulness Triathlon will be a day where the community will come together to help move these mountains in hope of a brighter future.

PARKING INSTRUCTIONS
The main parking lot for True Vine is the South entrance off of Earl Campbell Parkway. This parking lot holds 100+ vehicles. On race day, there will be cones blocking off a portion of the main entrance into True Vine to designate the running area of our race. The gravel portion will be available to park in as long as you are not blocking the running path or the ability for other cars to maneuver in and out of the parking lot.

>>All vendors will have designated parking on John Carney Drive (North Entrance) so they can have access to the booth area.<<

We will have several vendors with tents in the concrete parking area of True Vine. This area will be blocked off and no parking or traffic through the two entrances (South to North and vice versa) will be allowed. This entire area will be used for our vendors’ tents and for our race participants to visit after the race.
