Team B.A.B.E. Athletics
The initial idea for Team B.A.B.E. Athletics was conceived during the 2018 Triathlon Brand Ambassador season. (You know the months of September & October when ALL our favorite brands are having us athletes submit ambassador applications and then are breaking our hearts when they only choose a handful of elite people in the end?)
After seeing so many amazing female athletes not get selected by their favorite brands because they didn’t fit the brand image, were just the “average” athlete or didn’t have enough instagram followers we thought, “Why isn’t there a team that supports ALL female athletes, has a badass vibe and provides a kickass family of support?”
After a couple of months of planning and working out details Team B.A.B.E. Athletics launched in March of 2019. We can’t wait to see where this journey takes us and build a badass team of amazing women along the way!
“A B.A.B.E. has the wings of victory 🦅, the heart of an athlete ❤️ and the fire of a badass 🔥”
“Finally, A badass Multi-sport Team Just for women where you are Welcome regardless of your Size, ability, age or number of instagram followers.”

Whether you’re tackling your first 5k or your 50th IRONMAN triathlon, Coral is here to support and guide you as you chase down your goals and uncover your inner badass.
Coral grew up swimming on the Florida Gulf coast, cheering her parents on at local races and swearing she’d never, ever race a triathlon (thumbs down to running!). After completing her first super sprint triathlon at 14, she was hooked and continued to race alongside her mom – who still races as a BABE – through high school and at the collegiate level with the University of Florida TriGators.
While living overseas, she fell in love with the mental challenge of long course racing and continues to focus on half/full triathlon, open water swims, and endurance cycling.
When Coral isn’t coaching or training for her next event, you’ll likely find her hanging out with her two labs at the beach or spending time with family. Coach Coral Owen
Coach Rae is an ACE certified Group Fitness Instructor, Certified Spinning Instructor, Certified NESTA Sport Yoga Instructor and IRONMAN Certified triathlon coach.
With a love for the multi-sport modality of triathlon, Coach Rae enjoys being able to share the sport with other women. “I understand how challenging it can be learning something new, but also how rewarding it is when you conquer that badass challenge. There is nothing better than being able to share that feeling with other female athletes.”
Rae has always been active and involved in sports. She grew up riding her bike everywhere, playing volleyball and running high school track. As an adult she played Roller Derby and upon “retirement” was looking for a new sport. That was when she found Duathlons and made the 2018 Team USA Long Course Duathlon team.
Coach Rae now uses triathlon as a way to manage her weight and mental health; from PCOS, anxiety and depression. It also helps fulfill the competitive spirit of her badass personality. 😉
Rae is a mom to two amazing boys and one giant doodle dog. She is also a military wife. Their family is currently stationed in Jacksonville, Florida.Coach Rae Walaska
