Marathon runner surprises girlfriend with proposal at finish line

This is the heartwarming moment a marathon runner proposes to his girlfriend at the end of the race – wearing a t-shirt reading ‘Will you marry me?’

Romantic Jonny Black, 43, popped the question to partner Kathryn Keir, 41, after finishing the Edinburgh Marathon in Scotland.

The keen runner had a personalized top made which read: “Kathryn, will you marry me?” on the front and “Popping the question if and when I reach the finish” on the back.

Shocked Kathryn was at the finish line cheering on boyfriend Jonny, who ran the race in four hours and 27 minutes.

And she managed to capture the whole proposal on her on phone, as she was videoing Jonny, from Dundee, Scotland, as he finished the race last weekend.

In the adorable video, Kathryn shouted Jonny’s name before he turned around and walked towards her, ring in hand, and got down on one knee.

Jonny, a software engineer, said: “We met two years ago.

“I’d got invited by her to a post-Edinburgh Marathon prosecco party in Linlithgow so I thought it was an appropriate occasion to mark it.

“For the last couple of years we’ve been involved with the Linlithgow Running Buddies and done a lot of running together.
