Fountain Valley resident Humberto Rojas was first to cross the finish line at the Disneyland Half Marathon Sunday in Anaheim.

The 27-year-old beat out more than 15,000 runners participating in the event billed as "The Happiest Race on Earth." His time was 1:08:14.

The race kicked off at 6 a.m. near Downtown Disney and ended with a life-changing moment for one very happy couple - a dramatic proposal at the finish line. The answer was yes.

The 13.1-mile loop course finished near the Disneyland Hotel.

The event was hosted by "The Price is Right" host Drew Carey, who also participated in the event. He finished with a time of 1:50:46.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
