The 2-mile walk route takes you from the airfield out to Fort Point at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, giving you unique views of this world-famous destination.

The 5K walk route allows you take in the full scenic beauty of the area, stretching from the foot of the Golden Gate to the Crissy Field Marsh.

 

Celebration  David Martin's House Party

Join us for food, music and a celebration of the Aneurysm and AVM Community. We'll once again have our annual raffle with incredible prizes! Winners announced throughout celebration. Must be present to win.

Crissy Field and East Beach is ideal for picnics! Overlooking the San Francisco Bay with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, we'll have light sandwiches, snacks, and cake along with musical entertainment provided this year by the amazing David Martin's House Party.

 

What to Bring

- Comfortable, casual attire and shoes – this is a walk, after all!
- A blanket to sit on. We’ll provide food, but feel free to bring your own picnic.
- Be prepared! San Francisco spring weather is unpredictable! The Walk is happening rain or shine, so bring sunscreen and a jacket.

 

Parking

Free parking is available at the East Beach Lot.  We have reserved a portion and it is first come, first served with access beginning at 8:45AM.  There is additional free parallel parking alongside the entirety of Mason Street.  Do no park at the Sports Basement lot.  For paid parking options (max typically of $8/day), consider using ParkMe .  It is a great resource and most of the sites are within 5-10 minute walk of the East Beach picnic area.

If you are using GPS, use 1199 East Beach, San Francisco, CA 94129.  Give yourself extra time in the morning and do not reply solely on GPS.
