While hundreds of locals will take to the streets of Newport for this weekend’s Amica Newport Marathon, only a few handfuls of area residents are set to take on the Boston Marathon, which will be contested Monday, Oct. 11.

It marks the first time the annual race from Hopkinton to Boston will be held in October, rather than its usual April time slot.
