Better Sprinting Mod

This 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).


  • 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
  • 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 (only in SSP!)
