Claire Lomas' life turned upside down on 6 May 2007 when she became paralysed from the chest down in a horse riding accident.
Claire was a Chiropractor and top level event rider when the freak accident left her unable to do the things she loved.
A year after her accident, Claire met and later married Dan. They had a baby girl - Maisie. She found some new sports, set up a business and fundraised for the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation to help get a cure for paralysis.
In 2016, Claire became the first person to complete the Great North Run in a robotic suit. It took her five days to complete the 13.1 mile course. She was 16 weeks pregnant at the time and gave birth to her second daughter, Chloe, in January.
In 2017, she successfully walked the Simplyhealth Great South Run over 24 hours, her toughest challenge to date.
She has been awarded a 2017 Pride of Sport Award for her Great North Run challenge, which she received at a ceremony in London in November.
