Hello, I am curious if there are any glitchless categories for speed running out there?

Yes, there is glitchless in this leaderboard under 'misc categories' http://www.speedrun.com/sotn#Alucard_Glitchless_any

There are a few more people that have ran glitchless, but their times aren't here yet. Its not a super popular category, but it is a good run.

Should be noted that there are some glitches that are allowed in Glitchless.

Thanks for the response! I am thinking about getting into speedrunning the game.
It is my all time favorite console game. I Play it mainly on emu now. The last time I challenged myself in the game was the 'Naked Alucard Challenge' http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/196885-castlevania-symphony-of-the-night/faqs/30576
but that was about 5 years ago. I will load it up and play every now and again just to experience the game, it is so great!

Emu is completely fine for submissions, you can check the guides and resources sections for more information. For the most up to date route and strategies you can watch dr4gonblitz's run which is the current WR
The two glitches that are allowed are dmg stack in the prologue and mp refil glitch.
