    hurried for home

    Seeing the dark clouds overheads, George hurried for home.

    This sentence comes from my textbook. I wonder what is the difference between 'hurried home' and 'hurried for home'. Or is the word 'for' a redundant?

    Thank you in advance.

    1...'overhead' is correct, not "overheads".
    2...no difference, I would just say "hurried home"
