Following a three year hiatus, the NSW Triathlon Club Championships will return to Forster for three years starting in 2020.
The event, which remains one of the most hotly contested and exciting weekend across the Triathlon NSW calendar, will be delivered by Triathlon NSW's race director partner, Elite Energy.
Well known in the Great Lakes, Elite Energy has more than 30 years experience in running multisport events.
Next year's event, which will be held on Saturday, May 23, is expected to attract more than 1500 athletes, technical officials volunteers, staff and family and friends.
In the past the event has injected around $500,000 into the local economy.
In consultation with MidCoast Council, Triathlon NSW has specifically selected this date to give the local community a boost during a traditionally slower period in the season.
Forster Keys will be the location for the start line, finish line and transition.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our beautiful backyard to visitors from across the State," MidCoast Council mayor, David West said.
"There is no better place for a triathlon.
"We have a strong history of supporting these types of events and I am very proud our region will be hosting the Triathlon NSW's Club Championships.
"Securing this event is a great way of sharing all that we have in the MidCoast with others."
The day will once again feature a junior club championships event, a half club distance and a full club distance.
A high priority of Elite Energy and Triathlon NSW will be minimising the disruption on the local community and residents combined.
To achieve this, and in consultation with council, the adult race will begin on Saturday morning, followed by the juniors.
Elite Energy also will work closely with local sporting groups to attempt to minimise the disruption of their participants, by ensuring open lines of communication occur.
The sport of triathlon along the Mid North Coast has gone from strength to strength in recent years, but it is anticipated that the movement of this event will see an increase in local home town support, particularly from the Forster Triathlon Club.
