Some Italian researchers calculated that a 145 pound person would have to run 67 miles per hour to be able to run across water—that's 15 times the force human legs are capable of producing.

(long boring complicated article here: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...7300-Glasheen1 )

In this video, skilled athletes with special shoes are actually able to run across the surface of water over a short distance (kind of).
