Okay, to start an extra race you go to the main menu, select extras, select races, then you have a choice of four races to choose from. All four are exceedingly difficult to obtain the achievement on, not because you need the peppers in any way but because the devs littered the choke points in the courses with the peppers, making them hard to avoid.

Before you start a race, make sure the last save you loaded was on an easy difficulty setting, or else there won't be enough acorns/meat to get you to the finish because the bar will drain too fast.

After probably hundreds of tries, I've come to the conclusion that the first race, titled 'Forest Race', is the best. This is because the second race has a pepper right before a checkpoint you need to hit making it nearly, if not fully impossible. The third course had peppers in multiple narrow areas making it maybe the hardest. The forth has a pepper right before a wooden wall you have to break through giving you no choice but to hit it perfectly so you don't hit the side and get dismounted.

So the first race, the main problem is the first cave, which has three peppers and not a lot of room. I've found a trick by trial and lots of error that makes it possible to get through, though you might need some practice to get it right. When going through the cave, stay to the right and keep mashing the jump button, wiggling the direction stick left and right slightly to keep you from being counted as hitting the wall. If done right you should just bounce a bit against it. This still doesn't make it easy per say, but it will get you through and I've found myself getting better at it as I kept trying.

Right after the cave stay right and launch off from the grassy part to avoid the pepper in the center of the path, and the second checkpoint after the cave is really easy to miss, you have to hit it in front or else you will just bounce off and lose. These are the main obstacles that will likely cause you to lose, but take every part seriously. I ran into easy to avoid obstacles because I wasn't careful.

Some general tips:

LB and RB are to slide in their respective directions, you may need them and they can prevent you from being knocked off from the boar/wolf by some obstacles and walls.

Run through the course once or twice so you know what to expect. You don't want to do a perfect run and lose due to something unexpected.

If you have a save slot with the easiest difficulty, load that save last before attempting, having lax food pick up time isn't just a big relief, it's actually necessary if you are on nightmare and maybe hard difficulty.

I've personally found this extremely frustrating, if you have high blood pressure or something you might want to be careful. I've had relaxing music on at the time and it took away from the stress. This took me probably at the very least 100 tries, feeling like 200, so if you are having a lot of trouble just stick to it and your plays will gradually get more refined until you get it.

Any comments/suggestions/typo corrections feel free to message or comment, I'll try to help as I can.
