7e LA NORMANDIC
On a 100% sand course, everyone, beginners or experienced, can participate in this great Nordic walking day event * of the Côte Fleurie, organized by the association Les Normandiques on the beaches of Villers-sur-Mer, Bénerville -sur-Mer, Blonville-sur-Mer, Tourgéville and Deauville.

Created in 2014, La Normandique aims to transmit the values ​​of Nordic walking and to initiate the curious and beginners to handle sticks and good positioning of the feet. They will be able to try to appropriate this technique so singular in the morning during the walk "nature-health-leisure" of 7 km not timed, while the most confirmed will leave for the Nordic "sport" walk of 12 km timed and with ranking. In the afternoon, those who want to get closer to nature can enjoy a barefoot walk in the water by the sea.
Between two steps, visitors can go to the Normandy village, located at the Jean Mermoz esplanade, to take advantage of the wellness stands. On the program: massages, reflexology, sophrology, beauty workshops, yoga ...
La Normandique is also an opportunity to participate in a good cause: part of the registration fees will be donated to CAMI, Sport et Cancer.

* Nordic walking consists of walking at a faster pace than classic walking or hiking thanks to the use of two specific sticks which accentuate the natural movement of the arms and allow to propel yourself forward, and therefore to walk faster, longer and with less fatigue. The benefits of regular practice of this health sport, at any age, are proven: 90% of the muscles are stressed, which increases the expenditure of energy and promotes weight loss.
