The new "Wessex Hillrunners Offroad Enthusiasts" club began in February 1999, with Steve and Sarah Le May (Chairpersons), Barry and Sandra Wood (Secretaries) and Giles Sadd (Treasurer) as the club committee. Our basic aim is to bring like-minded people together to enjoy offroading and their vehicles. We want our members to make the decisions on what we do as a club, after all it’s their club, the committee tries to make their ideas happen. Wessex Hillrunners is based in "PORTSMOUTH", Hampshire, England, but our membership base spreads over the whole of the Hampshire area. We have people that come from different parts of the UK to visit us and enjoy with us the offroading!
We are a family orientated club with no airs and graces, we just want to have fun, off-road and we try and achieve this as often as possible. All vehicles are welcome, any age, any make, anybody. Due to this we have a large variety of vehicles from a 6x6 Alvis Stalwart (amphibious) to a brand new Freelander. We do our best to cater for everyone.
As in most clubs there is a large variety of members with extensive knowledge and skills which are on offer to all our members. If you become a loyal member, you can also get good discounts and special offers! There is always someone willing to help or give advice, or help you find that part you so desperately need. We are well supported by local and national companies who offer discounts on a large variety of services which you may need. We also have members with their own businesses who can offer help and discounts not only with offroading in mind. Also, if you have a special request, just say and we will try to fulfill it.
Wessex Hillrunners gets up to most things, offroad fundays/weekends, greenlaning days, pub meets etc.. The club also supports all of the national shows like"Billing LRO Show", "West Wycombe LRW Show" and this year "The Europa Truck Show" held at Bordon, Hants.
The club is very friendly with all the other local clubs in our area which benefits everyone. At present we are starting to help local charities in the area. We would also like to get more involved with byway issues (greenlanes) by volunteering our services and manpower to the local authorities. If you like what you see and your up for a lot of fun and maybe a completely new way of life, don’t delay, please contact Wessex Hillrunners Off-Road Enthusiasts a.s.a.p. Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Lastly a thank you to our sponsors at greenroom.bet
