I would like to know if using the following sentence is correct:
"Went out running"
if I'm describing someone who went out from a place in a hurry,
I know that I should just say: "Went out in a hurry"
But is it wrong to use the first one? Does "running" in that sentence become an adverb?
Thank you in advance.

But that sounds to me a bit formal. I'd expect to hear a changed verb: 'he ran/hurried/rushed out.
