If you are local to St Andrews or are visiting this Saturday, 11th July there is a First timers special. It is a lovely course which is set in Craigtoun Park just outside St Andrews. The course is mostly on gravel paths with a little bit of tarmac, reapeated 3 times to make the 5k. There are a couple of inclines(not hills!) in each loop, enough to have you puffing a bit but not seriously out of breath!
First timers are meeting at the Park entrance at 9.15 for a briefing with the run starting at 9.30. If you are thinking about trying a Parkrun this would be a nice way to do it.
Craigtoun postcode is KY16 8NX
