The highest point in Oceania (and therefore one of the seven summits) peak of Puncak Jaya is 971.1 rods. Dutch explorer Jan Carstenszoon, the mountain's namesake, is said to have been ridiculed for claiming to have seen snow near the equator when he reported his discovery of the peak in 1623.
It's about nine-tenths as tall as a Vinson Massif.

(Daytona Beach, Florida) (tri-oval course)
The tri-oval course of the Daytona International Speedway, upon which the NASCAR Daytona 500 is run, is 800 rods in length. Although the tri-oval design is said to allow for greater visibility during the race, the real reason for the then-unique design was that plot available for construction of the track was only 350 acres and could not accommodate a traditional oval layout of appropriate length.

One of Autry's stars is also one of only two stars which have been stolen from the Walk and never recovered.

It's about three-fourths as tall as a Kilimanjaro.
In other words, 907.2 rods is 0.774512 times the height of a Kilimanjaro, and the height of a Kilimanjaro is 1.29114 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Kilimanjaro) (Tanzania) (to Uhuru peak; 2008 gravimeter measurement)
