Races and Runs

​​​​Some events and activities require a special use permit because of the impacts they may have on the park's resou​rces or visitors. Elements that could trigger the need for a special use permit include:

  • Attendance of more than 30 people
  • Need for road closures, detours, or intermittent traffic stoppages
  • Tents or canopies
  • Reserved parking, valet parking or shuttle service
  • Food trucks, catering, or alcohol service
  • Organized sports use​ – see Playing Fields information

To propose an event, contact the Presidio Trust at (415) 561-4200 or Please note that requesting a Special Use Permit requires a minimum of 10 working-days notice in writing.​

The National Park Service Special Park Uses Group manages special events at Crissy Field and Baker Beach. To propose a special event at Crissy Field or Baker Beach, visit the National Park Service website or call (415) 561-4300.
