For the second year in a row, the Nationals’ racing presidents appeared in the annual Cupids Undie Run on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on Saturday.
Volunteers stripped to their underwear and ran 1.5 miles in near-freezing weather. George, Tom, Abe, and Teddy all participated, donning boxer shorts over their usual racing uniforms. New racing president William Howard Taft did not make an appearance.
The event is held annually on the weekend before Valentine’s Day, and raises money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation.

As expected, Nationals racing presidents Teddy Roosevelt and George Washington participated in Saturday’s Cupid’s Undie Run to raise money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation.
Thankfully, they maintained their dignity.

The Washington Nationals racing presidents will participate in Saturday’s Cupid’s Undie Run, reports The Hill.
The event is held annually on Valentine’s Day weekend, and raises money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation.
Participants volunteer to strip down to their underwear and run 1.5 miles in usually-freezing cold weather, though this year’s participants are relatively lucky. The forecast for race time is a balmy 44 degrees.
The race is scheduled to begin at 2:00pm from Pour House at 319 Pennsylvania Avenue SE and head towards Independence Avenue, then up 1st St SE. Spectators are welcome.
Thanks Running is Funny
