Since they began in 1983, the Highmark QUAD Games have been the region’s premier fitness program with four year-round events designed to keep you and your family in great shape. Now, three decades later, the Highmark QUAD Games celebrate 30 years dedicated to offering this one-of-a-kind fun and unique way to have a greater hand in your health.
The Highmark QUAD Games offer the opportunity to participate in four events throughout the year as a perfect incentive to stay healthy.
Events are designed for participants of all levels. For those interested in testing their athletic skills, the Highmark QUAD offers a competitor level with timed results and event awards. For those looking for a fun way to stay healthy all yearlong, the Healthy Lifestyle category lists all results alphabetically and encourages you to approach the Highmark QUAD and its four events as short-term fitness goals that bring variety and fun to your exercise.
The Highmark QUAD Games can be a big boost to your company’s wellness program. Employees can represent their company or business by filling in their company’s name on the corporate team line on the registration form. Employees can help the team even if they participate in one event. If you don’t have a company team, you can still represent your organization. It’s noncompetitive, but we’ll list your organization next to your name in the standings.
SEPT. 14 – 31st ANNUAL HIGHMARK QUAD RUN.
The third leg of the Highmark QUAD will be using your legs: the five mile run begins at 9 AM at Gibson Park in North East (at the intersection of Rt. 89 & Rt. 20.)

Fun for the whole family
It is especially fun to participate with your family and introduce your children to healthy life sports. The Highmark QUAD offers a rare chance to participate with your kids in swimming, biking, running and winter sporting events. To further encourage your family, all children 12 and under get a free entry (and T-shirt) when accompanied by an adult. The excitement, anticipation and fun of the events make for lively conversation around the dinner table and family memories that last a lifetime.
