I was looking at results from last years Culford triathlon to gauge where I would be, and wished to christ I never did. The winner had some really scary times.

However it put everybody into catagories. ie MI,MF,FF etc etc. Think they are the correct catagories I saw.

What do they mean? I know in some races they split into age groups ie 30-34, which is my catagory, but what do they mean. I can't relate the abbreviations to the actual catagories. I bet I am going to look thick now and it is totally obvious.

    I suspect they are the BTA age group codes..

    I am category "E" and male so would probably be ME

    What does E mean though?

    Give the race website an email and ask nobody will think any less of you I don't know what they mean. I'm a Cat F with BTA but I don't know what the M is for.

    I see you are the same birth date as mine. So that must mean due to being 1973 i should be an F? Maybe it is 30-34 are Fs?

    Thats right mate F are the 30 - 34 age group.
