Little is known of this race which was won by British runner Edgar Bredin. Bredin was primarily known as a 400 metre runner, and he won that distance and the 100 metres in the 1900 professional events. In June 1895 he set the 400 metres world record of 48.5 at a meet in London, a mark which still stood at the time of the 1900 Olympics. Runner-up Jules Bouchoux also finished second to Bredin in the 100 metres and was third in the 400.
