Pike's peak is definitely an extreme day hike. The Barr Trail from Manitou Springs is 13 miles with over a 7000 ft. elevation gain to a peak over 14000 ft. I can't believe there's an annual marathon up and down this trail.

yes, the Pikes Peak marathon is 50 years old. here is a story I wrote about two of my attempts at the marathon. A good hiking time is about 6 hours to the top.
