Better Sprinting is a 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).
