I remember these well! From the athletic center, cross Mass Ave, head for the tunnel from Building 7, RUN the tunnels all the way to the Green Building, then RUN the stairs all the way up the Green Building (20-some flights!), then back down and RUN the tunnels back to Building 7. You are allowed to walk across Mass Ave back to the Student Center and Athletic Center to cool down!
