Abstract: A corollary of Sard's theorem is the following:

Corollary. Let $ f:K \to {R^n}$ be a smooth (i.e. $ f \in {C^k},k \geq 1$) map defined on a compact subset $ K$ of $ {R^n}$. Let $ C = \{ y\vert{f^{ - 1}}(y)\;is\;infinite\} $. Then the Lebesgue measure of $ C$ is zero.

The purpose of this note is to show that a similar version of this theorem holds for Lipschitz functions.
