Abstract: In this note, we will show that for a closed subanalytic subset $ A \subset \mathbb{R}^n$, the Clarke tangential regularity of $ A$ at $ x_0 \in A$ is equivalent to the coincidence of the Clarke tangent cone to $ A$ at $ x_0$ with the set

$\displaystyle \mathcal {L}(A, x_0):= \bigg \{\dot {c}_+(0) \in \mathbb{R}^n: \, c:[0,1]\longrightarrow A\;\;$$\displaystyle \mbox {\it is Lipschitz}, \, c(0)=x_0\bigg \},$

where $ \dot {c}_+(0)$ denotes the right-strict derivative of $ c$ at 0. The results obtained are used to show that the Clarke regularity of the epigraph of a function may be characterized by a new formula of the Clarke subdifferential of that function.
