The games went ahead despite the logistical problems. Sixteen South Pacific Games records were broken in the track and field athletics events alone. Athletics competitions at the 1975 South Pacific Games were held in Tumon, Guam, between August 4–9, 1975. A total of 35 events were contested, 22 by men and 13 by women.
