The Claire d’ Loon 5K Classic Tour will start by following the Flowage 15K race course for the first 1.75 K and then branch off using trails on the eastside of the bridge crossing. The Claire d' Loon 5K is a favorite of younger skiers, families and first time racers. The tour course is generally flat with intermittent rolling hills and rated easy to moderate. Virtual event skiers keep and self report their time.

All participants will receive a nordic ski hat commemorating the event. Immediately after the race, skiers and volunteers of the live event will enjoy a pasty lunch while winners receive their awards.
