"YOu now have 12 hours to reach minimum safe distance"
It's 10am, March 25 2023. You are a runner, a worker at a secret, reactivated atomic energy research facility near Harwell in Oxfordshire. Suddenly the siren sounds. It is the sum of all fears. There has been an accident.
Radioactive material has been released! It is deadly upon contact, travelling for 40 miles in all directions before the effects lessen. It will take around 12 hours for the fallout to spread that far (approx 3.75mph), getting bigger minute by minute, extinguishing all life in all directions within the growing radius of expansion.
You just have time to swallow your iodine pill, and activate your tracking beacon, giving you 15 minutes to clear the complex and immediate area before the fallout cloud starts to spread, it will expand in real time on the TrackTrail® tracking map. Go any direction you like, but you'll need to stay ahead of the ever-expanding cloud or be instantly vaporized.
Abingdon and Pangbourne are vaporized
Swindon, Marlborough, Reading, Oxford, Basingstoke are destroyed
Winchester, Chippenhan, Guildford, Watford, Banbury, Cirencester are lost
If you have escaped the fallout for 12 hours you have reached 'minimum safe distance. You'll survive, at least for a few more years...
However, the cloud will continue to expand and if you want to live a long, full life, you can keep running until you are the Last One Standing.....
