Looking to do something important with your life? Sure, you could join Teach for America or volunteer with Doctors Without Borders.
OR! You could try out to be a Racing President.
We know what you've decided.
The four Mount Rushmore presidents generally race around Nats Park, pose for photos, sign autographs and appear at some outside events... like, oh, er, maybe "The Nutcracker."
To qualify, you must be:
- Between 5'7" and 6'6" tall
- Able to run 200 yards in 40 seconds or less
- Able to wear a costume weighing about 45 lbs for several hours
- Available for at least 35 Nationals home games
If you're awesome enough to want to race while wearing a big creepy head, send a photo, resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Feb. 10.
Tryouts are by invitation only. We just hope you aren't cast as Teddy. For some reason, that poor guy just never seems to win.
