This was her first race since she suffered a life-changing cycling accident last August.

The Run for the Roof 5k course in Hampshire’s Meon Valley was quite difficult with inclines, thick wet grass and even some water, but Worne battled through it all in her hand powered bike-chair to complete the race in 41 minutes and afterwards she said it was the best feeling ever to have finished the race.
