He's trekked to the South Pole with Prince Harry and taken part in the gruelling 'Marathon of the Sands' in Africa.
But the next challenge planned by double amputee Duncan Slater will have a special significance.
Mr Slater, from Scole in South Norfolk, is going to hike for three days from London to the Walking With the Wounded office in Stody in north Norfolk.
The 119-mile trek, which starts on Friday December 9 in London and finishes in Norfolk on Monday December 12, is part of the charity's annual Walking Home For Christmas campaign.
Mr Slater will be joined by the charity's co-founder Ed Parker, and the pair will sleep rough and ask for food and drink during the challenge.

This walk is just one of many across the country in the lead up to Christmas with every walk helping to raise crucial funds for homeless and vulnerable veterans with physical, mental or social injuries.
Last year walks totalled more than 5,000 miles and the campaign raised enough to support more than 250 vulnerable veterans through the charity's programmes to re-integrate them back into society and regain their independence.
