Geoff Morphitis, Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers, the organiser of the event commented:

‘We had an excellent turn-out of athletes and officials in what was a continuous downpour all day. In the circumstances, the results were impressive……. To all the officials and Allianz Park ground staff who braved the adverse conditions to make sure the meeting was a success. This was the final match of the 2013 season and with an average attendance of over 350 per meeting, it proves the need for such a series as a pathway through our sport. Achilles and SBH are already in discussions to see how we can improve the Challenge in 2014. Thanks once more to Alan James for prompt production of the results’.
