- Sprint Hold key with an obvious function
- Sprint Toggle key which toggles between sprinting and walking
- Sneak Toggle key which toggles sneaking (opening GUIs makes you stand up until you close it)

- Option to turn on/off double tapping W
- Flying speed boost when holding sprint key in creative mode
- Option to fly when touching the ground in creative mode
- Option for sprinting in all directions in singleplayer
- Ability to easily disable all features of the mod if it's banned on a server

- Quickly access Better Sprinting settings in-game using O key
- Slowly access Better Sprinting settings from the Controls menu
- Optional update notifications (checked at most once a day)

- When installed on a server, use the /bettersprinting admin command to enable special features, or automatically disable the mod on client side when people join
- If you don't have a Forge server, you can read all about implementing your own mod/plugin to benefit from the features
