The men's 4 miles team race was a track and field athletics event held as part of the Athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. It was the first time the event was held, though the 1900 Summer Olympics had featured a similar event in the 5000 metre team race. Two teams of five athletes each, nine from the United States and one from France, competed. The competition was held on September 3, 1904.

  1. 1.0 1.1 Corey was French so the International Olympic Committee medal database shows this medal for a mixed team. Nevertheless the IOC credits the silver medal Corey won in the marathon still incorrectly for the United States.
