The men's 3000 metres steeplechase at the 2010 European Athletics Championships was held at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys on 30 July and 1 August.

Frenchmen Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad and Bouabdellah Tahri took the gold and silver medals, respectively. The initial bronze medallist José Luis Blanco was later stripped of his medal as he had given a positive drugs test at the Spanish championships in July.[1] Ion Luchianov of Moldova was elevated to the bronze medal.
