The men's long jump was a track and field athletics event held as part of the athletics at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. It was the third time the event was held. Ten athletes from three nations participated. The competition was held on Thursday, September 1, 1904.

Myer Prinstein, who had taken second place in 1900 after leading in the first round of jumping but declining to compete in the second due to it being held on a Sunday, won the contest and set a new Olympic record for distance.


These were the standing world and Olympic records (in metres) prior to the 1904 Summer Olympics.
