Timber Sport Events

Log Rolling - Lumberjack World Championships

Log Rolling

Lumberjacks and lumberjills run atop spinning, floating logs in an attempt to topple their opponents! Difficulty increases as the logs get smaller!

Boom Running - Lumberjack World Championships

Boom Running

Competitors sprint atop a "boom" - a series of linked, floating logs - from one dock to another and back, as logs begin to spin out of control!

Pole Climbing - Lumberjack World Championships

Speed Pole Climbing

Lumberjacks go head to head in the breathtaking speed pole climb as they scale a 60' or 90' pole & seemingly fall to earth in record time!

Chopping - Lumberjack World Championships

Chopping

Lumberjacks and lumberjills sharpen up their axes to compete in the high intensity standing chop, underhand chop, springboard chop, and standing block chop!

Throwing - Lumberjack World Championships

Throwing

Bullseye! Precision is the name of the game as competitors throw a double-bit axe as close to the center of a target as possible from a set distance away.

Sawing - Lumberjack World Championships

Sawing

Sawdust will fly when lumberjacks and Lumberjills attack lathe-turned white pine in a head-to-head competition using a crosscut saw or a souped-up chainsaw in a variety of fast and furious events!

Tickets

With an abundance of caution, the Lumberjack World Championships Foundation is temporarily suspending ticket sales for the July 30, July 31, & August 1, 2020, Lumberjack World Championships competition and festival. We’ll continue to monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials, as well as health agencies, regarding the hosting of summertime events. While it is our hope and intent to host the 61st Lumberjack World Championships as currently scheduled, we’ll await further guidance from officials and will announce any adjustments on or before May 15, 2020. If you are a current ticket holder, we’ll be in touch if anything changes. We look forward to celebrating the amazing LWC timber sports legacy with you all and to a collective “YoHo” sometime soon!
