Chopping wood may seem like a tireless chore. But at the now retired Great Outdoor Games, there s a lot more to the timber events than that.
From log rolling to tree topping to the hot saw and more, the Great Outdoor Games turned lumberjacks into competitive athletes. Each of the timber events was either a race, as was the case with the team relay or speed climbing, or an endurance event, like logrolling.
