TSUNEISHI GROUP (ZHOUSHAN) SHIPBUILDING, Inc. (Abbr.: TZS; Location: Xiushan Island, Daishan County, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, P. R. of China; President: Sachio Okumura), together with Daishan Government, hosted “2017 TSUNEISHI CUP” Marathon on September 24th, 2017. All together there are about 1,000 people from all over China, participating in the Marathon, including 150 TZS staff members, led by President Okumura, and Hirohide Isoda, TZS Shipyard Manager.

As part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, TZS initiated and sponsored “TSUNEISHI CUP” Marathon in 2015. This year is the third time. At the opening ceremony of “2017 TSUNEISHI CUP” Marathon, President Okumura said, “2017 is a significant year when TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING celebrates its 100th anniversary. It is our responsibility to develop and grow together with local community. I am very glad that so many people are competing in “2017 TSUNEISHI CUP” Marathon. I hope that “TSUNEISHI CUP” will continue for one hundred or more years. Please enjoy running and try best to finish the whole race.”

There are three race courses, 5 kilometers for interest running, 12 kilometers for health running, and 16 kilometers for cross-country running. The participants can select one of the three which is fit for their running competency. Moreover, there were about 70 TZS staff members who worked as volunteers to back up “2017 TSUNEISHI CUP” to be held successfully.

In the natural scenery of lush green meadows, beautiful mountain, and blue sea, encouraged by the participation of the former Olympic Chinese representative, all of the participants did their best to complete the race. It was really a good opportunity to enhance the vitality of the local community, and promote the solidarity among TZS staff members.

As one of the strategies of the TSUNEISHI’s development, growing together with the communities, TZS would like to continuously make a contribution to the realization of the community in which people live happily and wealthily.
