The Jamaco River Run is a 501(c)(3) charity event that raises much needed money for youth sports. It is 100% volunteer based, meaning every penny of the proceeds go directly to youth sports organizations. In addition, the race donates 15% of all proceeds back to its host town - beautiful Merrimac.
The name Jamaco pays homage to the history of our wonderful home town. The area we now refer to as Merrimac was originally settled in 1638 by English settlers as part of Salisbury. After Amesbury separated from Salisbury in 1666, the West Parish of Amesbury was commonly referred to as "Jamaco". Though the name Jamaco eventually gave way to Merrimac, we think it has a nice ring to it.
