It takes 569km to get from Malin to Mizen Head and one club are pooling their efforts on Sunday to do it all indoors.

Members of the Flesk Valley Rowing Club will host their 'Malin to Mizen Indoor Rowing Challenge' in support of the Killarney Order of Malta.

This event at Killarney Racecourse has been organised to mark the end of the club's winter training and in anticipation of long sunny evenings on the lakeshore!

Members of the public are being invited to attend as well as and past and present members of the club.

More than 40 members young and old will start rowing on the indoor machines at 11am and hope to collectively cover the distance from Malin to Mizen Head by 12 noon.

Members will row a variety of distances from half-marathon to 5k, individually and in relays.

"The club members have decided to dedicate their efforts to raising funds for the Killarney Order of Malta who have a fantastic tradition of community service in Killarney and across the county for more than 70 years," Tim O'Donoghue from the club told the Killarney Advertiser.

"There is scarcely a community or sporting event that they don't cover, including our own regatta last year, and always with professionalism and good humour. We would like to invite the public, and members past and present, to pop in to the Celtic Steps venue at the Killarney Racecourse to witness the spectacle and noise of 25 rowing machines and support our rowers and the Order of Malta."

"The club would like to sincerely thank David Rea and Sean Murphy (Celtic Steps) for hosting us throughout the winter and for their support in facilitating this event and we wish them every success in the season ahead."
