Keeping my colostomy bag on during running

I was hoping to get some help from any runners out there with a colostomy please....I am 41 and have a permanent colostomy (since May last year). I am a really keen runner and despite the treatment I have had to go through am really focussed on maintaining my running. I wondered if there was anyone who maybe able to help me with a problem I am having with my bag staying on during a run.

I am currently in training for a marathon at the end of September. I use a 1 piece closed coloplast bag and also use additional strips and silibond glue. The issue I have is that despite using these additional adhesive products I cannot seem to keep the bag fixed in place and by the end of a long run (anything over 10k), then the sweat generated makes the bag come unstuck.

I wondered whether you knew anyone like me who has a colostomy and who runs like me. If they could perhaps offer some help / advise it would be really appreciated.
