Yes, theoretically, if humans were capable of running fast enough, they could run across the surface of water.

There are videos you can find showing people running across the surface of a pool filled with water and cornstarch. If they simply try to walk across, they sink and it behaves as a liquid.

Humans have a much higher weight than small animals, and it has to do with the ratio of surface area touching the water to the amount of weight pushing down.
