2020 Pennsylvania Senior Games









Keystone State Games / PA Senior Games COVID-19 Update as of August 5, 2020


Due to the current state mandates and social-gathering recommendations surrounding COVID-19, we are cancelling the Keystone State Games Festival of Sports and PA Senior Games scheduled in Luzerne County from July 22 – August 2, 2020. Our priority is the safety and well-being of our game participants, sponsors and volunteers, and we believe this is the best decision.


It has been decided by the Keystone State Games, Inc. Board of Directors that we will NOT host any in person sporting events for the remainder of 2020. We will be hosting a Virtual Keystone Games 5K Run / Walk and Esports Challenge starting on August 7 - October 31, 2020.  Please Click Here for More Information and to Register!!!


Thank you for your continued support of the Keystone State Games and PA Senior Games and we are confident that we will get through this together!
