A teenager has melted hearts around the world by running 5.5 miles (8.8K) to ask his cross-country teammate to be his prom date.

Joran Fuller ran a very specific route in order to ‘prompose’ to Claire Short.

He tracked his run using an app and later sent the image to Short, which clearly spelled out “Prom?”.

Needless to say Short was pretty impressed by the gesture and posted about it on Twitter, where it has since been liked more than 111,000 times.

After saying yes to Fuller’s invite, Short shared several images of his run on Twitter, along with the caption: “But did your prom date run 5.5 miles to ask you?”

Turn your head sideways and Fuller’s masterpiece becomes clear.

Hundreds of people have commented to say the post brightened their day. 


We hope the pair have a wonderful time at prom.
