A National League in Mountain Bike Orienteering has been held since 2008. A series of events spread across at least 3 states constitutes the league each year.
There are competitions for individuals as well as state based teams.
In 2008 and 2009, the league was conducted in Open Elite and Junior (under 21) classes. In 2010 the competition was expanded to include Masters age classes - increasing the competition between states.
