Just how long does the engine run before it shuts down? First, check the fuel cap for proper ventilation. If none - replace. If good, most likely valve issues if older, otherwise, if newer, ignition related. Post back with engine numbers to help us help you better.

My #1 guess would be fuel related. As mentioned, make sure the fuel tank is venting. Check for a dirty fuel filter, debris in the fuel tank, or a clogged valve (attached to the float) in the carb. Fuel may be able to slowly trickle into the bowl of the carb. which is enough to keep it running for a short while, but it cannot get enough flow to keep it running.
