An Oshima shipyard team participated three years in a row in a long-distance relay race sponsored by Nagasaki Shipyard

On January 19, 2014, the 2013 fiscal year marathon relay was held in the compound of Nagasaki Shipyard (Koyagi) of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and an Oshima Shipyard formed a running team consisting of strong and confident runners and participated in the race.

In response to a pep talk from President Minami who regretted being unable to participate in the event, all runners from Oshima Shipyard ran tooth and nail. They wrapped up the race in the 42nd place very close to the 41st place they marked in the previous year.
