The Song of the Ungirt Runners

Poem by Charles Hamilton Sorley (1895-1915)

Sorley was a Scottish war poet and British Army officer. He ran cross country while he was a student at Marlborough College in England.

He died in combat in WWI at just 20 years old.

The Song of the Ungirt Runners answers the question: Why do we run?

"We do not run for prize . . . we run... because we like it."
