NTN Corporation (hereafter, NTN) sponsors “RUNRUNRUN 2019,” a running event held by the Midorikai Co., Ltd. (hereafter, Midorikai), and will hold “NTN Rotating School” at both the Tokyo and Osaka venues where these events will be held.

“RUNRUNRUN” is a running for employees of Midorikai member companies as well as the general public. The concept is to strengthen relationships among employees, their families, and friends through various events such as half marathons, relay runs, and family runs.

Runners of the NTN Track & Field Club will participate in the events, and the “NTN Rotating School” will be held in the venues to promote the events. At the “NTN Rotating School,” both children and adults can enjoy learning about energy-saving technologies and bearings for a sustainable society through various programs. This time, NTN will offer hands-on attractions of bearing assembly and the speed race of bicycles using NTN's bearings. Bearings used in automobiles, railroads, artificial satellites, and other types of machines will also be exhibited.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
