|Founded||February 15, 1927|
|Headquarters||San Luis, Lima|
|Vice president(s)||José Ramos Pancca|
|Replaced||Federación Atlética Peruana|
|(founded)||November 22, 1918|
FDPA was founded on November 22, 1918 as Federación Atlética Peruana. First president was Alfredo Benavides Canseco. It joined CONSUDATLE in 1925, and Perú's first international appearance was at the IV South American Championships in Montevideo, Uruguay. Later that year, the Peruvian Olympic Committee (Comité Olímpico Peruano) installed a commission for the integration of the sport of athletics. The process resulted in the foundation of the Federación Peruana de Atletismo on February 15, 1927, with president Pedro Villanueva.
After the resignation of Enrique Cusicanqui in 2011, former vice-president Jorge Julián came into office. In December 2012, Miguel Ignacio Mendo was elected president for the period 2013-2016. However, the result was not recognized, and a new election was scheduled, where ex-sprinter Óscar Fernández was nominated and confirmed as new president.
