BOSTON — Runners from the world’s elite racers to first-timers will step to the Boston Marathon starting line on Monday for the first time the race has been held since last year’s deadly bombing attack.

Some 36,000 people, the second-largest field in the race’s 118-year history, will set out from Hopkinton, a town west of Boston, for the 26.2-mile race that finishes on Boston’s Boylston Street, where two homemade pressure-cooker bombs last year killed three people and injured 264.
