|2004 United States Olympic Trials|
|Host city||Sacramento, California, United States|
|Date(s)||June 9–July 18|
|Main stadium||Hornet Stadium|
|Events||40 (men: 20; women: 20)|
The 2004 United States Olympic Trials for track and field were held at Hornet Stadium in Sacramento, California. Organised by USA Track and Field, the ten-day competition lasted from July 9 until July 18 and served as the national championships in track and field for the United States.
The results of the event determined qualification for the American Olympic team at the 2004 Summer Olympics, held in Athens. Provided they had achieved the Olympic "A" standard, the top three athletes gained a place on the Olympic team. In the event that a leading athlete did not hold an "A" standard, or an athlete withdrew, the next highest finishing athlete with an "A" standard was selected instead.
The trials for the men's marathon were held February 7 in Birmingham, Alabama, the women's marathon were held April 23 in St Louis and the trials for the men's 50 km race walk were held February 15 in Chula Vista, California.
