The Dead Jocks are passionate athletes and long-time Hood To Coast participants. With great gusto, they participate in the race they have loved for decades, even as the minutes on their mile stretch with age. Their expert knowledge of the race contrasts comically with the desire to have as much fun as possible on the course, which translates to acting like they did when they were much younger runners. As a result, they alternate between the voice of authority and of the fun instigator.
