I'm drawing a blank, and thesaurus.com isn't being any help right now. What's another, perhaps more professional sounding, word for 'ran', as in, "the project ran for over two years".
extended, lasted, persevered, kept going, kept up, pressed on, continued, endured, survived, prevailed, transpired, came off, commenced, trans
I like "continued." It's neutral.
Yea thanks Cis, it's the first that occurred to me
Yes, that was my suggestion as well.
There's always "went on", but that would be good only if you are trying to say the project was too long.
