    an obstacle course for children in the category of

    Hello.

    Suppose that a married couple is celebrating, say, the fifteenth anniversary of their wedding and is throwing a party. As part of the party, an obstacle course for children in the category of bikers, firemen and soldiers is being organised.

    Do you think that the bolded fragment "an obstacle course for children in the category of bikers, firemen and soldiers" is logical and understandable?

    Thank you.

    "in the category of" means nothing to me in that context. What exactly will the children be doing?

    Did you write the original sentence?

    Yes. I am no longer a child and I am not familiar with obstacle courses organised for children.

    You must know something about it though in order to write the sentence! What I meant was that I needed to know how bikers, firemen and soldiers will come into it?
