It has a hard exoskeleton and can run very fast, it took several tries just to get a good picture of it. It has straight antennae so I was sure it wasn't an ant.

Wingless wasp. Can’t help much beyond that.

"The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer." Prov. 30:25  

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.

I did an image search and it says it is

Cephalonomia gallicola

 

which is(obviously not an ant) a parasitoid wasp.

Tbh, this does look like a beetle (anthicidae) and possibly it is a beetle.
