'Run right through it?' You mean without setting it off? You either have the trap set wrong or there is something wrong with the trap.
Sometimes you have to use a bit of ingenuity... Maybe disguise the trap or change your procedures. Squirrels are one of the easiest animals to trap. I even catch them in unbaited traps.
I remember a friend of mine borrowed one of my traps, 4 days later he said there was something wrong with the trap, he couldn't catch anything. All I did was move the trap out in the open, he had it nestled under some bushes. I caught one before he could finish the beer he started when I got there.

Here's a link to more squirrel removal information and pictures from Rid-A-Critter, an Atlanta animal control company.
