The biggest event of the year in logger sports!

The STIHL TIMBERSPORTS National Championships are coming to Chilliwack, BC on August 12 & 13, 2023 and you won’t want to miss out on the action. This adrenaline-fueled event showcases the top male and female logger sport athletes from across the country as they compete in a series of disciplines, including the hot saw, single buck, standing block chop, stock saw, underhand chop, and springboard chop.

On Saturday August 12 at 6:00pm the country’s 12 best Pro division athletes compete in the individual competition for the prestigious title of Canadian champion. The athletes compete in all TIMBERSPORTS® disciplines in three rounds, with points awarded based on the quickest times in each discipline. At the end of each round, the athletes with the lowest point totals are eliminated. The six athletes with the highest point totals compete for the title of world champion in the final round, which involves the deafening yet impressive Hot Saw discipline. The athlete with the highest points total after all six disciplines is crowned STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Canadian Champion and will head to Germany for the World Championships.

Reigning Canadian Champion and Bronze Medal winner at the 2022 World Championships, Marcel Dupuis defends his title against the 11 best logger sports athletes in all of Canada.

On Sunday, the Pros return to rip it up with their hot saws in the loudest and most intense competition in sports. Followed by the toughest women in the country battling it out to see who will take home the national title.

Tickets for this event can be purchased on showpass.

Prices are:

  • Tier 1 Saturday and Sunday – $75 CAD
  • Tier 2 Saturday and Sunday – $60 CAD
  • Tier 3 Saturday and Sunday – $60 CAD
  • Tier 4 Saturday and Sunday – $40 CAD

Or there are cheaper tickets for only Saturday or only Sunday.

Times and events are listed on showpass:

On Sunday August 13 at 2:00 pm the Pro’s return to open up the day with the Hot Saw Challenge, possibly the loudest and most intense competition combining “man” and machine.

The athletes must wield their hot saws with speed and precision to eliminate their opponent. No easy task given the average hot saw weighing in at around 27kg, Hot Saws are custom-built saws usually made with the engine of a dirt bike, snowmobile or jet ski, and delivering upwards of 60 horsepower! Carrying one of these beasts is enough of a challenge, let alone controlling the power enough to cut three cookies (or discs) from the log within a 15cm margin in mere seconds.

Also on Sunday the toughest women in the country take to the stage to show you that axes and chain saws aren’t just for the boys. The top 8 female athletes will convene to battle it out in 4 disciplines; the standing block chop, underhand chop, single buck and stock saw.

The woman with the highest point score will win the 2023 Championship an immediately qualify to represent Canada at the International Women’s Cup in Europe.

If you cannot make the event in person, all the action will be shared live on Facebook.

You don’t have to LOVE Stihl or LOVE chainsaws in order to attend these events. They’re well worth attending for the experience which is full of excitement and energy.

I’m sure you agree, the Hot Saw challenge in Chilliwack sounds awesome; if only the Stihl Jetsaw were to make an appearance! Or even Stihl’s newest chainsaw, the MSA 22 AF Dual Bar Chainsaw…?
