I have a temporary ileostomy that I use Hollister's 2-piece New Image system with. I also wear a 1-inch belt daily that hooks into the pouch. I'd like to find some sort of appliance that I can wear while running that will cover over the entire pouch to give additional support. I'm looking for some sort of larger belt, or wrap. A quick search of available products returns quite a few different types and brands. Does anyone have any advice they can offer on which to use?

a tube top could work for you...they're cheap and work really well. There is a site on one of the threads that will even make one to your measurements.
