What is the longe-côte?

First of all, it is essential to take stock of what is called the longe-côte. It is a water sport that is practiced above all at the beach .


The principle of the longe-côte is actually quite simple. It is simply a question of putting on an aquatic suit so as not to be cold, and of running with small strides, immersed in the water.


You then have water up to your shoulders or your chest , depending on your preference. And you will run in small strides, along the coast. It is a fairly sporty nautical activity , which is particularly known for all its benefits from the point of view of health and morale .


In general, the longe-côte is practiced in groups. You accompany several people on this aquatic race for about 1 hour. This allows you to meet people and practice a very pleasant team sport .

What equipment do you need to go along the coast in Vendée?

The equipment for the longe-côte is actually quite simple: all you need is a more or less warm aquatic suit depending on the season and your needs.


You can also wear gloves and water shoes , to avoid tripping. In general, the coast is practiced on sandy beaches: you therefore have no risk of hurting yourself while running.


You have the possibility to put on a diving mask , but it is not recommended. Indeed, your head must be above water and a mask may prevent you from breathing properly while you run.

What are the benefits of loin-côte?

The benefits of longe-côte are actually very numerous. It is indeed a sport that is practiced in the middle of nature , and which has many advantages from the point of view of health.


Running boosts your cardio , which is already good for your health. But doing it in seawater is all the more beneficial!


It has been scientifically proven that seawater has many benefits for the skin , but also for the muscles . It would limit the appearance of aches, and would facilitate blood circulation.


Without forgetting that you practice this sport in the ideal environment of the Vendée beaches, which extend to infinity.
