Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-and-four-fifths times as long as The Beast (Roller Coaster).
In other words, 4,400 yards is 1.7940 times the length of The Beast (Roller Coaster), and the length of The Beast (Roller Coaster) is 0.55740 times that amount.
(King's Island Amusement Park; Mason, OH)
The roller coaster The Beast is 2,453 yards 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 two times as long as The Kentucky Derby.
In other words, the length of The Kentucky Derby is 0.50 times 4,400 yards.
(Churchill Downs, Louisville, Kentucky) (total race length)
The total race length of the Kentucky Derby run at Churchill Downs is 2,200 yards. 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, 4,400 yards is 2.1052630 times the length of The Preakness Stakes, and the length of The Preakness Stakes is 0.4750 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 2,090 yards. 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, 4,400 yards is 0.4550 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 9,680 yards above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00437 yards and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00492 yards each year.
It's about two-fifths as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 4,400 yards is 0.43880 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 2.2790 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 10,060 yards 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, 4,400 yards 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 12,000 yards. 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, 4,400 yards is 0.369050 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 2.70970 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 11,923 yards 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.
