KINGSTON, Jamaica) — The United States claimed their tenth gold medal at the 2017 IAAF world championships as Quanera Hayes, Allyson Felix, Shakima Wimbley and Phyllis Francis ran to gold in a world leading 3:19:02.

Jamaica, running a changed team from their impressive run in the heats, did not finish after Aneisha McLaughlin pulled up with injury on the second leg. McLaughlin was drafted into the setup after Stephanie Ann McPherson reportedly withdrew late, as she was carrying an injury. There were, however, reports of McPherson's withdrawal after a reported clash between with teammate and MVP club mate Shericka Jackson taking place earlier in the day.

Great Britain (3:25:00) and Poland (3:25:41) were second and third respectively.
