Quad Awards Handed Out

Posted: Updated:

It was recognition day for those who participated in all four events of the 31st Annual Highmark Quad Games - that's running, swimming, biking and cross country skiing.

In the ceremony at TREC, each person received the a quad championship shirt. Craig Latimer, of the YMCA of Greater Erie is the organizer of the games.  Latimer, affectionately known to many as the "Quadfather," presented awards for the top three finishers in each age group.

Sponsor Highmark credited Latimer for the event's longtime success.  Highmark Sr. Community Affairs Analyst, Neil Parham said, "The YMCA is a key partner and Craig has worked so hard to put the logistics and various pieces of the event together, he's the reason for all of the success over the past years."  Latimer will be stepping down as year 32 of the Quad Games gets underway.

Parham said it makes sense for Highmark to sponsor the Quad, because of their commitment to health and their desire to encourage people to get out and get active.  Whether trained athletes or not he said it's possible for anyone to participate in the games.  With that in mind, they added a 5K run last year for those not able to take on the 5 mile run.
