Better Sprinting Mod that allows you to bind sprinting to a key! Great thing about it is, that it’s compatible with most mods that change options, like Optifine! Only incompatibilities are with mods, that change behavior of player entity or Controls menu (adding new buttons using GameSettings will work, changing like, way Controls menu works/looks won’t – it’ll break saving settings).

The sprinting system in Minecraft always felt unfinished and unrefined, but don’t worry – Better Sprinting is here to save it and add a bunch of extra glitter!

The Better Sprinting mod, for instance, adds single button sprinting and a toggle feature to turn automatic sprinting/sneaking on and off at the player’s discretion. As it is, players need to double tap w in quick succession to get a sprint going, and sprinting can be interrupted by being hit, falling into a hold or getting caught on a ledge during a jump, so this gets very annoying very fast. Many players who install Better Sprinting never go back to the old way of running around again – it’s just that useful.


  • Sprint (hold) key which allows you to sprint
  • Sprint (toggle) key which when pressed, toggles between sprinting and walking
  • Sneak (toggle) key which when pressed, toggles sneaking
  • Sprint menu key to quickly access Better Sprinting settings ingame (default: O)
  • Option to turn on/off double tapping W
  • Flying boost when sprinting while flying in creative mode*
  • Option to enable or disable sprinting in all directions*
  • Option to disable mod’s functionalities (you can turn off the mod if a server doesn’t allow it)
  • Compatibility with many popular mods, such as Forge, Optifine and SPC
  • The mod can also be installed on a server, and the /bettersprinting admin command lets you enable special features or automatically disable the mod on client side when people join

In addition to helping the player move faster and sprinting more often, Better Sprinting mod also makes flight faster. That’s only useful in servers which allow the /fly command, or if players are doing Creative Mode on their own computers, but it’s still a nice extra feature. Usually players will slow considerably once they start flying, even if they were running before they took to the air. This works for regular jumps too, so parkour fans can finally rejoice! Glitchy sprints will never be the reason for falling to death on a parkour course again with this mod.
