Event Key Details
Join us for the MtS Maritime Race, our first challenge event on the water, followed by a reception on the quayside!
Rowers in the MtS Maritime Race will form a shipping industry contingent of the Ocean to City Race, An Rás Mór. We would like to thank our sponsors Ardmore Shipping and Simply Blue for supporting MtS in our first rowing challenge event in Ireland.
An Rás Mór is Ireland’s very own long-distance rowing race attracting hundreds of participants annually. Started in 2005, it has grown from its origin as a race for traditional fixed-seat boats into an all-inclusive rowing and paddling event, embracing everything from traditional wooden working boats, currachs, skiffs, gigs and longboats to contemporary ocean racing shells, kayaks, canoes and even stand-up paddle boards.’
The main race is run over three course distances, all finishing to a warm welcome in Cork’s city centre:
Ocean Course: 15 nm | 28 km
City Course: 12 nm | 22 km
Monkstown Course: 7 nm | 13 km
The MtS Maritime Race will start at Monkstown for the half-marathon option, joining the fleet of boats as they pass by.
We aim to bring together participants from the shipping industry in a fun maritime event this summer. Companies taking part will benefit from opportunities including team building, networking, and increasing their CSR profile. All whilst raising crucial funds and awareness for seafarers.
Teams can be from 4-8 participants and we ask that each team raises €3,000 towards the Mission to Seafarers.

• €40 – Registration fee per participant
