The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – How to Sprint

How to Sprint – Skyrim

The world of Skyrim is huge, and if you plan to be a part of it, prepare to run across an entire continent full of bears, bandits, and snow yetis. Then prepare to run from all of those things, too. Because you’ll be spending much of your adventure on foot, here’s how to sprint across the world of Skyrim.

If you’re playing the original Skyrim, the sprint button is L2 on PS3, LB on Xbox 360, and the Alt button on PC. If you’re playing Skyrim: Special Edition on PS4, the sprint button is now L1.


Holding down the appropriate button will make your character run faster, but at the expense of stamina. That green bar in the lower right corner will deplete as you run, and once it runs out, you’ll be unable to sprint. You can increase your stamina by leveling up and choosing to increase your stamina stat, which will also increase your carrying capacity.

That’s all you need to know on sprinting in Skyrim. Good luck out there!
