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".

@dalehileman,
I like "continued." It's neutral.

@cicerone imposter,
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.
