ATTACK was founded on October 14, 1998. ATTACK stands for “All Terrain Trekkers And Cross-country Klub.” Though on paper, its SEC registered name is All Terrain Trekkers And Cross-county Klub, Inc. The county was chosen as most of the group’s journeys only take place within a certain region, but country is now acceptable today as well.
The first set of officers were Joseph Y. Sia (Pres), Victor Lim (VP), Dodong Bangflor (Sec), and Carlo A. Demafeliz (TRS). The original members were Billy Saraus and Phillip Tan.
Since then, the club is heavily involved in racing event, with that, ATTACK was the first to organized a race that is a three(3) man challenge known as “ATTACK Team Challenge” here in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. Individual challenge was also organized which was called “Mountain Madness”.
ATTACK offers the finest road and off-road routes around Northern Mindanao. We meet every Saturday at entrance of CAP (College Assurance Plan) Building situated at Tiano Brothers Street corner Gaerlan Street, Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines and usually we set off at 8:00 am.
ATTACK also do treks on nearby forests and hills, and also do river trekking on some rivers as well.
ATTACK has been to different mountains, mostly in Northern Mindanao. Some of its early climbs took place in the mountain ranges of Kitanglad such as Mt. Dulang-Dulang and Mt. Kitanglad; the majestic Mt. Lumot and Sumagaya near Gingoog and Claveria; Mt. Hibok-Hibok of Camiguin. In 2007, the group conquered the highest peak in the Philippines, Mt. Apo in Davao City.
In 2010, some members already did the D2K or Dulang-Dulang Kitanglad traverse in Bukidnon.
