Qualifying marks must be set between 1st January 2003 (marathon: 1st September 2002) and 9th August 2004. Although indoor marks are acceptable marks will not be accepted if set:
Each country may send a maximum of three athletes per event provided they have achieved the "A" standard and a maximum of 1 athlete per event provided they have achieved the "B" standard within the IAAF's qualifying period. In the event that a country does not produce any athletes to that level they may still select one male and one female athlete for a maximum of one event each. Up to 16 teams will be invited in each relay event based on the average of their 2 best times between 1st January 2003 and 21st July 2004.
