The man popped the question usingĀ four maps from a run.

A British runner used a creative, and technologically advanced, way to propose to his girlfriend this week: A GPS tracking app.

Ben Chudley of Portsmouth, England went out for a 15-mile run and tracked it using his phone’s GPS running app. He turned the GPS on and off to create four separate routes, which spelled out, “WILL YOU MARRY ME.”

The 28-year-old Chudley then shared the route on Facebook Tuesday after his run. He returned home with flowers and an engagement ring. His girlfriend was there, and she accepted his request.

Chudley told the BBC it “could have been very embarrassing if she had said no.”

In the past, Chudley has “drawn” a dinosaur, seahorse and the cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants during his runs.

A cyclist on Strava rode a route shaped like a bike in September.
