FORMER Warwick woman Katie McKean, nee Ensbey, who was hit by a car in Brisbane almost two weeks ago, regained consciousness on Saturday as her uncle Keith Stevenson ran in her honour in the Warwick Pentath-run.

Mr Stevenson represented the Ensbey and McKean families, who had intended to compete in the event, at the weekend.

He dedicated his participation to Katie, running all five events with a photo of her on his shirt and spoke to Olympian Steve Moneghetti who wished her all the best, a family friend said.

The family friend said she was awake and things were looking positive.

"The whole family has been based at the hospital for the past week and feel this is the first really good news. She is recognising family," he said.

Katie's fight is not over yet as she remains in intensive care at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.
