Athletics competitions at the 1938 Bolivarian Games were held at the Estadio El Campín in Bogotá, Colombia, in August 1938.

A detailed history of the early editions of the Bolivarian Games between 1938 and 1989 was published in a book written (in Spanish) by José Gamarra Zorrilla, former president of the Bolivian Olympic Committee, and first president (1976-1982) of ODESUR.[1] Gold medal winners from Ecuador were published by the Comité Olímpico Ecuatoriano.[2]

A total of 27 events were contested, 23 by men and 4 by women. Unusually, cross country events (individual and team) were part of the games.
