Unified in the Pursuit of Human Achievement

The Battalion is a small (and relatively new) running and triathlon club based out of New York City. Our philosophy is to build community around the sport through racing. Each year the Team picks a series of races to train for, which dictates our training schedule.

We are fast. We are slow. We welcome all, as long as you have heart and dedication.


This was my first season training with a coach and the gains I made were tremendous. Looking back I finished my first complete Ironman, PR’ed an Olympic Tri by 13 minutes, PR’ed the Marathon by 6 minutes, and set PR’s for the Half Marathon and shorter distances as well. Combine that with extensive traveling and a crazy career and I can honestly say I never would have been able to do it without Baker coaching me through. Looking forward to next year!
