JACKSON — Kids age 5 to 18 competed in the Youth Obstacle Challenge Friday during the Jackson County Fair, pitting themselves against a series of strength, agility and endurance obstacles tuned to their age groups.

It’s normal to fail in an obstacle course, Jeff Johnson emphasized.

Kids who couldn't get past an obstacle completed a penalty and then went on to the next challenge.
