Running from Irvine to San Fernando, The 405 runs a total of 152,940 paces. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
It's about nine-tenths as long as Hadrian's Wall.
In other words, 140,000 paces is 0.890 times the length of Hadrian's Wall, and the length of Hadrian's Wall is 1.10 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Roman Wall, a.k.a. The Wall, a.k.a. Vallo di Adriano, a.k.a. Vallum Aelium, a.k.a. Severus' Wall) (from North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England, United Kingdom to Cumbria, North West England, United Kingdom)

It's about one-and-one-fifth times as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 0.830 times 140,000 paces.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 120,000 paces in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 34 paces above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.

(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)

The Grand Canyon has a total length of 585,000 paces along the course of the Colorado River at its bottom. Having opened in early 2007, the Grand Canyon Skywalk allows tourists to stand on a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway 1,440 paces above the floor of Granite Gorge.
It's about nine-and-a-half times as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 0.10 times 140,000 paces.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 14,000 paces. 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.
