STIHL put out final call for TIMBERSPORTS® event

ATTENTION all limber lumberjacks and wood-work warriors: there is still time to apply for the next STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Newcomers’ Training Camp on 19 and 20 March 2022.

The competitive event, to be held at STIHL’s dedicated training facility in Whitney-on-Wye, is inspired by Australian lumberjacks from the 18oos, who would make chopping through logs a competitive event.

The core concept of the extreme sport – known as TIMBERSPORTS® – remains the same, but now has an official set of rules and gives competitors the chance to test their mettle in front of huge numbers of fans the world over.

If you want a piece of the action in this growing sport, then apply for our next Newcomers’ Training Camp. To apply, just click here, complete the form and let Stihl know why you think you would be good at TIMBERSPORTS®. They will select the most promising applicants who will then receive a day of expert training in three of the disciplines, including stock sawunderhand chop and single buck. There will be a fee of £49.50 for the training, which will include lunch and refreshments as well as STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® merchandise worth over £50.

And if you impress at the camp, those athletes who show the most promise will get the opportunity to take part in further training in 2022 in the hope of being selected for the official Rookie or Pro Championships in the future.

No experience is necessary as you will get full training on the day, but a sporty lifestyle and strong core muscles are always a benefit for any potential TIMBERSPORTS® athletes. STIHL do ask that you let them know if you have had any logger sports experience in the application form though.

If you want to try a sport that is guaranteed to get the pulse racing, TIMBERSPORTS® is for you!
