It can be tricky to find a loop at the Canmore Nordic Centre that doesn't involve a bunch of steep climbs and descents. However, the biathlon area and lower trails have some great beginner-friendly options.
This great introduction loop is best ran clockwise. It will take you through Get In, Baby Beluga, EKG and Green Orchid with a net loss in elevation. The main difficulty of this run is the climb back up to the stadium, which can be done by going back up "Canmore Trail" until you hit the dirt jumping park. A great runnable loop, and some fun twisty trails!
