A total of 46 events were contested, of which 23 by male and 23 by female athletes. This was the first time that the male and female event programmes had reached parity as a number of new events were introduced for women, including: 3000 metres steeplechase, pole vault and hammer throw. Two women's events were modified: the javelin model was changed and the 10 km racewalk was extended to a 20 kilometres racewalk. This was also the final time that marathon races were held at the Mediterranean Games as they were replaced by the half marathon from 2005 onwards.
