Speedrunning in Minecraft is a tried and true skill, but it can also be fun and somewhat meditative.
Players looking to hone their speedrunning skills can look into a few speedrun-friendly seeds.
These seeds can help them learn the nuances of speedrunning. These include getting the first materials for a Nether portal and setting up a nearby stronghold for easy access to the End and the Ender Dragon boss fight.
Bedrock Edition and Java Edition have slightly different ways of generating seeds.

Awesome Minecraft: Bedrock Edition seeds for speedrunning
5) 5 Minute Speedrun Seed (376166266)
If Minecraft speedrunners are looking for a place to start learning, this seed is a great place to start.
This seed features an abandoned village on spawn, a huge ravine pointing to the world fortress, and even an exposed zombie spawner.
Additionally, players won’t have to worry about wandering the Nether to find Flame Rods. Opening a portal places players near a lower fortress and bastion remnant.
It’s no wonder this seed was used to break a previous Minecraft speedrun world record in 2020.
4) 7 Minute Speedrun Seed for 1.18 (376166266)
Minecraft version 1.18 significantly changed world generation. However, this does not mean that some players failed to speed up the seeds of the version.
This seed, featured by a YouTuber called Kobra, features a taiga village and fortress incredibly close to the player’s spawn. This provides players with everything they need to quickly enter the Nether.
Once in the Nether, players can reap the rewards of an adjacent Fortress and Stronghold. They can collect fire rods and trade eyes of ender as quickly as possible.
Kobra has shown that this seed allows gamers to beat the game with no glitches in seven minutes.
3) The Six Villages 1.18 (2073720455)
This particular seed of Minecraft 1.18 can get a player running fast due to its plethora of village blacksmiths.
There are a total of six different villages within 600 blocks of the player’s spawn point. Some villages don’t have blacksmiths, but others do. In addition, there are many food resources in the alternate villages that may be needed later.
Additionally, one of the seed villages has a fortress below. Even a ruined portal isn’t too far from the spawn, so players are ready to quickly and efficiently collect early-game resources and move on to their next objective.
2) Desert Speedrun Seed (1967697203)
This is possibly one of the best stacked speedrun seeds in a desert biome in Minecraft. The seed starts with both a Desert Village and a Desert Raider Outpost incredibly close to spawn.
Once these are cleared, a desert temple accompanied by an additional village rests across the small river from the seed. Once players have reached the Nether and obtained all the Eyes of Ender they need, they can simply return to their initial desert village and dig below. The fortress is located here.
This Minecraft seed may start out in a tough biome, but it provides just about everything an aspiring speedrunner could need.
1) Dual Blacksmith 1.16 (-895041041)
Minecraft speedrunners probably won’t complain about this seed, as it starts with two blacksmith shops in villages near the spawn.
Additionally, the spawn is surrounded by excellent loot spots such as spawner dungeons, ruins, and a buried treasure chest. Two ruined portals also rest near the spawn, and each of them leads directly to a lower fortress for quick access to the flame rods.
Once players have all the gear they need, they just need to return to their spawn to find the stronghold.
This is a great seed for practicing your best speedrun time in version 1.16.
