MiniMarathon runners get engaged at the finish line

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- When the Derby Festival miniMarathon came to a close, a new journey began for one Evansville couple. Ben Griggs chose the finish line of the race as the place to ask his girlfriend Aly Ulrich to marry him. 

He waited patiently for her to cross the finish line so he could hold up his sign. The crowd cheered as she said yes.

"She didn't think it was coming until later in the summer," Griggs said. Ulrich says she was surprised and "had no idea."

The couple's families were even on hand for the proposal and plenty of exhausted runners were there to celebrate with them.

They say they have not yet set a date for the wedding.
