COMMENTS

In other words, no sum a(i)+a(i+1)+a(i+2)+...+a(j) may be prime. In particular, the sequence may not contain any primes.

Without the condition that the parity alternates, it seems that the sequence (A254337) contains only a single odd number.

It appears that a(n) ~ 3n. Is there a simple explanation for this?
