Mountain biker Traharn Chidley’s heart-wrenching account of being a domestic abuse victim

Mountain Biker, Mountain Runner and Adventurist Traharn Chidley shares her very personal and traumatic story of surviving domestic abuse, why she endured it for years, and later how sport gave her the strength and confidence to take control of her life.  Traharn’s story is narrated by Chris Stafford in this 20 min podcast.

“It’s a story I’ve desperately wanted to tell for a while, but it’s also one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’ve realised as a coping mechanism I’ve blocked out a lot of what happened, as it’s too painful to think about, but I’ll share what I can, because I want to help people who are in a similar situation, to see the light and seek help.”
