News Bits-Metrodome "Last Lap"

Metrodome running, which has been a Minnesota winter refuge for over three decades will, hopefully, just be taking a break during the construction of the new facility.  The "Last Lap" will be held at 7:55 PM on the day after Christmas at the Dome.  One last chance this winter to run on dry pavement this Winter.  Rick Recker, USATF president and administrator of the Metrodome running program since its inception, reports that talks are being held to continue the runs in the Dome when the new facility is built.  Stay tuned.
