Sometimes when I leave the spawn area, I am moving much faster than usual. The speed seems to vary, as does how long it lasts. What is causing this?

    Odds are, you had a Lucio on your team. He has a passive speed boost that can be amplified to further increase your speed.

    Lucio would probably be why.

    Ah, okay, that would make sense. That would also explain why the length of time varies. I'm probably getting out of range.

Lúcio was nearby.

One of his skills, Crossfade allows for nearby team members to move faster than usual.

Lúcio continuously energizes himself—and nearby teammates—with music. He can switch between two songs: one amplifies movement speed, while the other regenerates health.

Emphasis mine.

As for why the speed increase varies, it's because of another one of his skills, Amp It Up, which boosts the effect of his Crossfade songs.

Lúcio increases the volume on his speakers, boosting the effects of his songs.
