Meat Fight is one of the hottest tickets in town each Fall. So founder and Dallas Observer columnist Alice Laussade decided to create a summer event that was “a fun run, minus the ‘run’ part.” The 1st Annual Meat Fight 1K took place at the Tupps Brewery in McKinney, and was headlined by Mike and Cash Sirois from Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket, and Major League Eating champ Moose Perez. The course was filled with meat, whiskey, beer and desserts, with the finish line being the desire to raise money for the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. The 400 advance sale tickets sold out in under six hours, and an astonishing $24,000 was raised from sponsors, ticket sales, merch sales and donations.
