The Central American and Caribbean Games is a quadrennial event which began in 1926. The Games records in athletics are set by athletes who are representing one of the ODECABE's member federations. Both the initial records[1] and the records broken in 2010[2] can be found on the official Games webpage.

Records for defunct events were assembled from the gbrathletics website.[3][4] Wind info, relay teams and results for combined events for early competitions can be found on the CACAC webpage.[5]
