To run fast in Mass Effect Legendary Edition, you have to press and hold the X button (PlayStation), A button (Xbox). On PC, it’s the Spacebar key by default. This will make you sprint and gain speed for a limited time period until you get tired so Stamina will matter in this case. The Stamina bar is right above your HP bar therefore take your decisions about sprinting in the game accordingly. Make sure to not waste these Stamina unless absolutely necessary. Also, note that these buttons remain consistent for Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3 so you don’t have to worry about changing controls.

Sprinting will come in handy on multiple occasions. You can use it when you want to run towards an enemy who was previously out of reach. Or you could run to get to cover. Additionally, you can also sprint out of combat in Mass Effect Legendary Edition if your enemies are too powerful at that point. Make sure to manage your health and send your squad mates till you restore your health.
