Sub 4 'thon is respectable, but nothing special.
Sub 4 mile is good, but won't even qualify for NCAA indoors these days.
Since the marathon is in the Olympics and the mile isn't, I'll have to give the nod to the 42.195 k race.

There are too many variables involved in running a 2:12 marathon, even if you got the training right.
