The Men's 3,000 m Steeplechase was one of two male-exclusive events out of the 23 track events of the 2004 Summer Olympics, in Athens. It was contested at the Athens Olympic Stadium, from August 21 to August 24, by a total of 41 athletes from 27 nations.

The athletes competed in a three-heat qualifying round in which the first three runners from each heat, together with the six fastest losing runners, were given a place in the final race.

Qualification[edit]

The Olympic qualification period for the athletics ran from January 1, 2003 to August 9, 2004. For this event, each National Olympic Committee (NOC) was permitted to enter up to three athletes, provided they had run below 8:24.60 minutes during this period in IAAF-sanctioned meetings or tournaments. If a NOC had no athletes qualified under this standard, it could enter up to one athlete that had run below 8:32.00 minutes.
