Con veloz / velozmente

Hola, ¿cuál forma es usado más por los hablantes españoles?

El hombre corre con veloz...
Velozmente el hombre corre...

En mi novela veo más la forma con mente, ¿qué penséis? (¿qué piensen ustedes?)

y muchísimas gracias de nuevo amigos!

I have never seen nor heard velozmente but RAE states it's a valid word
I have heard con una velocidad rapida.

I know that veloz would be understood too.
Then, there's always fugaz.
Me ayuda si corrige mis errores. Gracias.

The man runs quickly/fast/rapidly.
El hombre corre veloz/velozmente/rápido/rapidamente.

Most adverbs in Spanish use the -mente ending, but some can be shortened, and appear the same as the corresponding adjective. Rapidamente and velozmente are two examples of adverbs that can be shortened to rápido and veloz respectively. You would not say *con veloz, but you could say con mucha velocidad.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
