The preliminaries delivered a shock as distance running power Kenya placed no athletes in the final. However, three Kenyan born athletes ran in the final, wearing the uniform of other countries; Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo and 41-year-old Bernard Lagat ran for the United States and Albert Kibichii Rop for Bahrain. The East African representation was strong with three Ethiopians in the final (plus Birhanu Balew running for Bahrain). Uganda qualified two athletes.

This race was the completion of Farah's attempt to complete the second Woolworth double (5 and 10). His race tactics were well known and his results consistent. Somebody had to do something different in order to beat him. From the gun in the final, two Ethiopian runners went to the front, while Farah dropped to his customary tail end position. Dejen Gebremeskel and Hagos Gebrhiwet went to the front and were pushing the pace. Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo moved in behind them. Farah sensed the change in tactics and moved up much earlier than normal to a position in the middle of the strung out pack, to watch the action. While the two Ethiopians were sharing the lead duty, Gebrhiwet was taking the lion's share. 19 year old Joshua Kiprui Cheptegei moved in to mark Farah's moves. With five and a half laps to go, the situation started to change. Chelimo moved up, passing Gebrhiwet, who fell back into the field. Farah used this occasion to hit the front.
