Dixons Carphone is supporting employee health and fitness with a personal trainer, custom training shoes and wearable exercise trackers.
It is part of the Average to Awesome project which aims to see staff from the retailer complete the two-day 100km Race to the Stones ultra-marathon.
In total 250 staff from the organisation will be battling to walk, trek or run 100km during the 48-hour long event.
Twelve of the group were part of the Average to awesome team and have lost a combined 12 stone in weight over 12 weeks in preparation.
Dixons Carphone head of CSR Kesah Trowell said: "We know a healthy workforce is a happy workforce and are thrilled to have helped our Average to awesome team transform their health and wellbeing.
"The results have been truly awesome - not only have we seen huge weight loss, increased energy and better overall fitness, we've seen other benefits such as how well this group from across the business has bonded."
Over 2,000 public participants will run, trek or walk 100km (62 miles) from Lewknor in Oxfordshire along the Roman Ridgeway to the ancient stone circle in Avebury on the weekend of 11-12 July.
Kesah added that being a part of the Race to the Stones enabled Dixons Carphone to encourage fitness, promote team-building and raise funds for our charity.
