Welcome all SF Marathon runners and spectators to The Presidio! This area is breath-taking, with over 10 miles of the most beautiful parks and country side that San Francisco has to offer!
This mile is all about the magnificent Crissy Field. Yet another historic airfield, it hosted Barn Storming Daredevils, which were those pilots and their acrobatic dance partners who displayed wing-walking and other crazy feats on small planes around barn areas, during the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, held in 1915 as the San Francisco Worlds Fair . Many of the original hangars are still there today and completely worth a visit!
As you will see now in those hangars you’ll find climbing walls at Movement Climbing, Yoga and Fitness, a House of Air Trampoline Park, Roaring Mouse Cycles and Fort Point Brewery’s production facility. This is the result of a massive architectural feat to rebuild the city and provide the community with access to more family-friendly and tourist programs and events, run by the San Francisco Parks Conservatory, a sponsor of the San Francisco Marathon!
