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!

Compete

Each April, professional lumberjacks and lumberjills are invited by the Lumberjack World Championships Foundation, via email, to apply to compete at the Lumberjack World Championships.

The application submission deadline for new athletes has closed. If you submitted an application for consideration and are selected by the LWC, you will be notified. All applications will be reviewed and athletes ranked and selected in April, with start lists for each event discipline determined and communicated to athletes by early June.

Volunteer

Be a part of the LWC without running on a log, climbing a pole, or swinging an axe. Volunteer for the LWC and you’ll have more fun than you can shake a stick at!
