The upcoming Royal Three Counties Show, Malvern, taking place from 14-16 June 2024, sees the return of STIHL Timbersports.

Three days of competition will see Britain’s top athletes compete against each other for the British crown, as well as the opportunity to represent their country at world level. 

The sponsors say competition for places in the British Pro Championship taking place on Saturday 15 June is so high that the first ever qualifier will take place the Friday before. The top six athletes from 2023’s Championship have earned automatic qualification, whilst the remaining athletes from last year’s competition will go head-to-head with newcomers to decide who will take the final spots in the main event. 

There are also 12 rookies (athletes under 25) competing in the British Rookie Championship and 11 women vying for victory in the British Women’s Championship on Sunday 16 June.

Fresh from finishing sixth at the World Rookie Championship in Milan, Jack Morris will be the one to beat in the Rookie Championship. In the British Women’s Championship, it’s all to play for this year, with previous champions Justine Narusa (2023 winner) and Zoe Penlington (2022 winner) returning as well as some exciting new talent looking to shake things up. Whilst the Pro Championship will be another hard-fought battle, but Glen Penlington will be hoping to hold off his rivals to make it a hat-trick of national titles, after he won in 2022 and 2023.

Tickets are available from the show website. The Pro, Women’s and Rookie Championships will also be livestreamed via the STIHL Timbersports YouTube channel
