Unreal Character movement - Walk-Run and Sprint - UE4 Open World tutorials #3

This is part 3 of the tutorial series I am doing on how to create an open world game with unreal engine. In This episode, I will explain how to implement toggle run-walk and sprinting into our third person character using animation blendspaces and animation blueprint.
Player can toggle the character running and walking using caps-lock and sprint by holding down left shift key. Each of these movement states will be animated using  2D animation blendspaces. All the animations and characters are from mixamo.
Following video explains the main process you have to follow and only the things which require additional explanations are explained in the article. 

Input for Toggle Run and Sprint

Input Events : Toggle Run and Sprint

Movement speeds :
Walk  : 300
Run    : 600
Sprint : 800


Those are the points i thought would require further explanations. 
Thank you for reading the article, Feel free to raise any concerns here, or in youtube channel or in the following facebook page.
