Runners and in-line skaters can once again come out of the dark and cold and into U.S. Bank Stadium for some of their workouts.

The stadium will be open to runners and skaters on 11 dates beginning Nov. 14 through the end of the year. It won't be available for running and skating in January because of preparations for Super Bowl events from Jan. 26 to Feb. 4.

Officials may announce more dates after the Super Bowl.

The Minnesota Distance Running Association hosts the indoor running, which takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. on the stadium's upper concourse. To enter, runners must pay $3 in cash.

In-line skaters can make the rounds on the stadium's main concourse with family skating from 5 to 8 p.m. and athletic skating from 8 to 9 p.m. Skaters must bring their own equipment, including helmets. A bag check is available for $3.

The cost for skaters is $10 for adults and $5 for children, ages 5 to 12. A season pass, which can be bought through Nov. 15, is $100 for adults and $50 for children.

Tickets can be purchased at the stadium's ticket office or online at
