Edwin Herbert Montague (1885 – December 28, 1937) was a British athlete. He competed at the 1908 Summer Olympics in London.

Montague won his preliminary heat in the 400 metres with a time of 50.2 seconds. He dropped his time to 49.8 seconds in the semifinals, but lost to Wyndam Halswelle who set a new Olympic record at 48.4 seconds in the race. Montague's second-place finish in the semifinals resulted in his not advancing to the final.

He was also a member of the British team which was eliminated in the first round of the medley relay event by the United States.
