Jump Height and Distance Calculator for D&D 5e

Strength Score:
feet inches
Dexterity Score:
PHB p182

Standing Jump

Long Jump: 5 feet horizontal. High Jump: 1.5 feet vertical.
Maximum Reach: 10.5 feet up.

10-Foot Running Start

Long Jump: 10 feet horizontal. High Jump: 3 feet vertical.
Maximum Reach: 12 feet up.


May need a DC 10 Athletics (Str) check to jump over, but not taller than 2.5 feet.
Difficult Terrain may need a DC 10 Acrobatics (Dex) check to not land prone.


You can jump your Strength Score horizontally with a 10ft run-up, or half that without. Vertically it's 3+Strength Modifier with run, half without.

In general you can't jump further than your remaining movement (you can combine with Dash) in a single turn, but your DM may allow an Athletics (Str) check to push beyond. Jumping counts as movement, so it still provokes opportunity attacks. You also still take falling damage, so watch where you leap.
