Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-and-four-fifths times as long as The Beast (Roller Coaster).
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 1.7920 times the length of The Beast (Roller Coaster), and the length of The Beast (Roller Coaster) is 0.5580 times that amount.
(King's Island Amusement Park; Mason, OH)
The roller coaster The Beast is 2.2430 kilometers in length. On its twenty-fifth year of operation in 2004, The Beast was awarded the Landmark Award by the American Coaster Enthusiasts as a historically significant roller coaster.
It's about twice as long as The Kentucky Derby.
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 1.998330 times the length of The Kentucky Derby, and the length of The Kentucky Derby is 0.5004180 times that amount.
(Churchill Downs, Louisville, Kentucky) (total race length)
The total race length of the Kentucky Derby run at Churchill Downs is 2.01168 kilometers. First run in 1864, the Kentucky Derby is one of the oldest continuously-running sporting events in America, almost two years older than the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
It's about two times as long as The Preakness Stakes.
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 2.1035050 times the length of The Preakness Stakes, and the length of The Preakness Stakes is 0.4753970 times that amount.
(Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Maryland) (total race length)
The total race length of the Preakness Stakes run at the Pimlico Race Course is 1.9110960 kilometers. Dubbed "the race for the Black-eyed Susans" after Maryland's state flower, the winning horse is actually draped with a garland of painted yellow daisies, as Black-eyed Susans do not bloom in time for the late-May race.
It's about half as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 0.4540 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 2.20 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 8.850 kilometers above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00000400 kilometers and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00000450 kilometers each year.
It's about two-fifths as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 0.43850 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 2.2810 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 9.20 kilometers above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about two-fifths as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 0.370 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 2.70 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 11 km. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about two-fifths as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 4.02 kilometers is 0.368740 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 2.71190 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 10.902 km below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
