A speedrun in Minecraft is a walkthrough of the game to complete tasks as quickly as possible. There are many different sprints a player can do, including defeating the Ender Dragon, collecting each block, completing each achievement, and more. Also, there are many different conditions that a speedrun must follow.
Some quick races allow players to choose a seed, while others have players select a seed at random. Some allow players to use glitches and bugs, while others do not.
In this article, we will go over the top ten seeds to run fast for Java Edition. Each seed is tested on version 1.17.1.
Top 10 Minecraft Java Edition Seeds To Run Fast In 2022
In this seed, players spawn right between a village and a Ruined Portal, both of which are known to have good loot.
The spawn point is inside a plains biome with a ton of trees nearby. Less than 1000 blocks away, a rare end portal can be discovered. The end portal is very rare because it has all twelve eyes of ender. This means that players do not need to create any additional ender eyes, just one to guide in the direction of the portal.
The portal will already be activated once you find it. You will know you are near the portal dig point once you come across a desert town.
End Portal Coordinates: 734 / 27 / 1148
In this seed, players will spawn on an island with a large town. Just outside of town, a shipwreck can be seen on the beach. There is also a Ruined Portal nearby, which can be used to easily access the Nether. This seed is great for fast running because there are three different generations right around the time of spawning that can be looted. It can be easily accelerated in a matter of minutes.
This seed contains another rare End Portal with all ender eyes, so no need to collect ender pearls.
End Portal Coordinates: 1008 / 25 / -1220
Players spawn between a decent sized village and a ruined Portal, with a ravine in between. Ruined villages and portals are known for their loot, and some valuable minerals can be found in the ravine. What’s unique about this seed is the nearby Ocean Monument, which is great for quick runs that include defeating all the bosses.

In this seed, players spawn right between a forest and desert biome. Peeking out from the arena, a buried ruined Portal can be seen, allowing easy access to the Nether. The final portal for this seed is located inside a nearby abandoned mine shaft.

In this seed, players spawn in a desert right next to a desert temple. A town can also be seen in the distance. Looking north from the temple, there is a looting post. These three naturally generated structures contain valuable loot that any player could use.
This is yet another seed where players spawn inside a desert. Right next to the spawn, there is a large town with a desert temple on the edge. The town contains a blacksmith, where players can find an iron pickaxe and 12 obsidian, the perfect amount for a nether portal.
There seems to be a common theme with desert temples and towns. In this seed, players spawn next to a desert town and temple, which contains loot. To get to the fortress, players must find their way to the mushroom island biome, below which the fortress is located.
Mushroom Island coordinates: 787 / 72 / 1110
In this seed, players spawn on a small island that contains buried treasure. Another treasure can be found on a nearby island. Also, an Ocean Monument can be seen in the ocean near the spawn.
1) Random seed
One of the best parts of speedrunning is not knowing what to expect, which is why we rate using a normal seed number one. Most speedruns don’t even count if you use a default seed. Plus, it takes the fun out of it. Many successful speedruns have been completed on random seeds. In the random seed we generated for the screenshot, a village was found right next to the spawn.
