Athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics

At the 1904 Summer Olympics, twenty-five athletics events were contested, all for men only.

Multi-event competitions, the decathlon and triathlon, were introduced for the first time. The short steeplechase was lengthened slightly, from 2500 to 2590 metres, while the long steeplechase was eliminated. The 5000 metre team race was replaced with the 4 mile team race. A 56 pound weight throw was added. In all, the 25 events featured in 1904 were 2 more than were held in 1900.
