Inside this book would be your answer: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0470429658/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1446167523&sr=8-1

Despite the title there isn't much hardscape as we know it in it. But it will give you some perspectives to think about regarding steps and more.

One something that long I pay special attention that each step isn't awkwardly advanced upon by the same foot EVERY time.
A recent job we have finished had a long set of concrete stairs poured that have more tread than rise. Everytime a person walks down or up it you are always using the same foot. It sucks to walk on. All construction guys walk on the 6-8" curb follwing the steps instead of the 4' steps.

There are soooo many different answers to your question. Grab a piece of graph paper and start experimenting. Remember depending on the specifics of your job you can create any rise you want per step. Also your landings can have pitch.
