It might have been 6 months late, postponed several times and dogged by COVID restrictions, but the 152nd New Year Sprint finally happened, and on a glorious summer's day. Sixteen year old newcomer Molly Reville made the most of the conditions to win the nailbiting final where ladies occupied the first three positions.

Ladies won the remaining events of this meeting, curtailed due to pandemic restrictions, with Nina Cessford victorious in the 90 metres Veterans and Sofia Vidak taking the 90 metres Ladies.

All events featured a handicap starting system.

The meeting was held at the East Lothian Athletics Arena on Sunday, 4th July 2021. See the meeting report or click here for the results from the 152nd.
