Kept on running but didn't go (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stayed

This clue could be a double definition.

'kept on running' is the first definition.
'stayed' can be an answer for 'kept' (I've seen this before). I am not sure about the 'on running' bit.

'didn't go' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

'but' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for stayed that I've seen before include "having support", "Tarried", "Remained or posponed", "Withheld; remained", "Kept going - or didn't".)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent.
