"Why do you run out there" is wrong. Should it be?

is this running at a place out there or running to a place out there, and how would you differentiate between the two?

Location is "ude", direction would be "ud". There are some adverbs that add an e for location, and no e for direction (for example: hjem/hjemme, ind/inde, over/ovre, hen/henne among others I can't list from the top of my head) which can also take a "her" or "der" to the front (such as "derude" = out there)

I would word it "Hvorfor løber du ud derfra?", but I'm not a native Danish speaker, so could be wrong.

Okay, I got to ask my native Dane and she'd word it as "Hvorfor løber du ud der fra?"

Mysteries galore, have a lingot. :D
