How far is it around the earth?

Really? Until today I thought everyone knows this is roughly 40,000km.

The radius at the poles compared to the radius at the equator is about 299:300, I heard once. Going through the poles could be a somewhat elliptical path. Then going around the equator is not exactly circular also: we have mountains, valleys and seas, the sun is pulling on some side of the Earth, the moon is pulling, other planets pulling lightly. This deforms the Earth a bit.

Then your question is ambigous, it depends on the path or trajectory you take around the Earth. The moon circles at a distance of approximately 375,000 km (taking a rough average) so it takes the moon about 2.3 million km to go around the Earth.

For low orbit satellites it is somewhere in between.
